Dear All


i have a requirement of sending mail for 4000+ customers.

Is there any limit of sending it only for a limited no of users at a time??

i have a java code which will send mail but dont know whats the limit of Email ID's in TO address

Because I have my company's customers list which will go above 3000

I didn't try anything, but I am not sure

please help me
thanks in advance

Do not, under any circumstances, send email to customers in a way that any recipient could see the addresses of other recipients. That would be a major mistake in customer relations that will anger many of them.

Just send individual emails to all of them.

Thanks for your comments

Sorry for the mistake "LIMIT OF EmailID's in BCC"

i will send it in BCC where Customer names will not get exposed & To address will be undisclosed receipent

My question is Mails for 4000+ EmailID has to be sent in a single shot

What the maximum limit to send it all @ once

thanks

I wouldn't use BCC, either. That significantly increases the chances of the mail being considered spam.

Thanks again.


Requirement:
1.Should send Emails to 4000+ @ a time
2.i am speaking to my Email service provider to avoid sending it as a spam mail,if i send in BCC


Is there a limitation of sending mails to bulk emailId's per day?


Some search results says "ONLY A LIMITED NO OF MAILS CAN BE SENT PER DAY TO FIGHT SPAM AND PREVENT ABUSE"


Mean while you give your valuable comments


thanks

That's no problem. But it will be 4000 emails, not just one.
2.i am speaking to my Email service provider to avoid sending it as a spam mail,if i send in BCC

The mail isn't *sent* as spam, it's more likely to be classified as spam by the receiving side. There's nothing your provider can do about this.

What's a "bulk emailId"?

I don't understand this statement. Who says this? In which context?
