.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?

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?

you can try to wrap your code in task as shown by my article and launch your tasks

Very nice

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