I have an Exchange 2003 Server on a relatively low bandwidth line (2Mbps) that is also used for 8+ office staff during the day for email and general internet browsing. We need to send a mail out to approx 900 customers to notify them of a change of address and for some reason it has been specified that we are not using our dotMailer account.
I'm sure there must be a way to set up a separate (temporary) SMTP queue for the email@example.com email so as to not interfere with every other user and schedule that queue to send overnight, but I'm no exchange guru. I don't know how.
- Email will be coming from a temporary email address.
- Must not interfere with other users
- Must be schedule to send out of hours (not from Outlook, if possible)
I'll need to increase the max # of recipients again. Would you advise sending to 900+ in the BCC field, or segmenting the email into smaller chunks of 50 recipients per email. The latter is obviously more work as the segmenting needs to happen and the numerous emails created.
Appreciate your help.
