Batch sending in Outlook????


P

Peter R. Adler

My ISP limits the number of emails I can send in a 10-minute interval. Our
club's email list is longer than that limit. I can break the list into
smaller sections and send a section at a time but, given the volume of
emails I handle, it means spending hours (literally!) in front of my
computer.

Please -- does anyone know of an add-in or utility that does batch sends
within Outlook, timed over pre-set intervals? Or a work-around that doesn't
involve setting up a server?

Something that will work while I catch up on much-needed sleep?

Much gratitude in anticipation --

Outlook is an e-mail client. That is its intended purpose. It was not
designed to be a bulk mailing service. Google for bulk mail services or
software. With bulk mail services, you do run into the anti-spam quotas.
With bulk mailing software, some can be configured as to how fast to send
out the e-mails (i.e., how many to batch up at a time and the delay between
each batch).

Stop trying to use a screwdriver as a hammer.

If there are some, they'll be listed at http://www.slipstick.com/addins/mail.htm#massmail

Peter's advice is right on target, though. Google, Yahoo, MSN and probably other services all allow you to maintain mailing lists with much less effort than doing it in Outlook.
