.Net void multi-threading

I have a winforms app I inherited

In effect it opens with a task scheduler
Runs a sub (void) and closes

The SendMail void effectively sends 10,000 emails from a list it gets in SQL Server and send on to a providers smtp

That Provider allows 10,000 in a send....
But there can be multiple sends going on at the same time.

Is there a way to run the SendMail void in 5 separate "threads" so that 50k are being sent?

        SendMail(IsLive)
        Me.Close()

you can wrap your code in a task and create 5 of them. Check http://emoreau.com/Entries/Articles/2013/10/SystemThreadingTask-class.aspx

but are you sure your provider will allow you to send 50,000 emails at the same time?

or just launch your job from the task scheduler 5 times with a parameter to process a different set of records in each instance
