    you&#039ll run into the same problems as you&#039ve experienced using other components. As i always suggest when people ask about mass mailing with components, you should break up your list of recipients using a paging recordset and send the email in batches, then your component won&#039t be under pressure. For this I suggest a recursive function that calls itself after completing, with an argument refering to the next page of the recordset<BR><BR>i suggest mailing using a Script Host script, using the ASPTime component to call a delay between calling the next set of recipients. this should stop you cooking your server.<BR><BR>jason
