Multiple email issues

Postby kurtbleicken » Wed Mar 14, 2012 3:39 pm

Just set up a method to send multiple emails. Just scrolls through list of contacts and send emails one by one. Takes about 1 second per email. The sender address is the user's own personal email address, googlemail, yahoo, exchange, etc. Typically user will send out 5 to 100 emails at a go.

My question is has anyone run into spoofing problems or other issues with an approach like this?

Thanks. K

Not spoofing, but my email provider limited the number of emails sent daily to less than 300 - so I had to resort to another service!

Thanks for your response. I'm sending it out of the server hosting the application, so don't foresee a problem there. K

I guess you use the default mail plugin?

If I'm not mistaken, this plugin will setup an smtp connection each time you send out a mail.

You could try to use the mailpro plugin of servoy-plugins.de
With this plugin, you can setup a connection once and send out multiple emails on this single connection.
One difference is the mailpro plugin will send out emails via the client instead of via the server.

Thanks Marc, good to know about the mailpro plugin. In our case, since the emails are being sent out by a volunteer asking classmates for donations, probably best sent from our server. K

Are we talking web-client or smart-client here?
I was assuming smart-client, but web-client will send it directly from the server as that's the place where the logic runs.

Even if you use smart-client, you could think of a batch processor sending out all your emails via MailPro.
