Bulk email programming technique


K

KFactor

I need to send out emails to our clients without mistakenly sending out the
wrong email letter. I would like our marketing department to verify what
will be sent before they are actually released. It would be nice to allow
the emails to stay in the outbox until they are verified. Marketing could
double check that these are the correct letters to be sent and who should
get them.

What is the best technique to set up and send out bulk emails? Should I put
the recipient info and content in the database? Should I only store the
recipient info (list of email addresses and possibly name just in case I
want to personalize the emails)?

I store the email address and names, but I build the html content (message)
on the fly as they are being sent. Bad part about this is once you click the
button, there's no way to stop those that have already been sent.

I'm using vb dot net. Database is SQL Server. The email program I'm using is
what came with dot net.

Any help would be appreciated.
