Hi all,

Could anyone suggest a scalable solution for sending of bulk email via asp.net?

I am currently reasoning sending email asynchronously using the MailMessage and SMTPClient classes... Am I venturing down the right path?

Thanks,

Rit

Hi,

Looking at the above link suggestion, it is quite clear that they recommend not executing a bulk mail function from an asp.net interface (being user driven). Do you know why this would be?

Thanks

I would recommend either Following method
1. Write an .EXE file using desktop applications and run this .EXE file through SQL Jobs ETC, We have our own vps for this
2. Write a window service to send emails

Sending bulk emails in an aspx page is pointless, since this action should not be user-driven. It should rather work as a service or a scheduled task, operating once in a while.

Another method
SMTP might not able to handle sending bulk emails; since it requires huge hardware and all.

So you can go for any third party tool for sending bulk emails like Exact Target.

Let me know.
