Upper Limit For Mailing List

P: n/a
Hi,
I am developing a messaging form which will use webmail in c#.The
mailing list will inherit costomised groups from MOSS 2007 site.So the
mailing list may vary in future.

I just wanted to know is there a limit of maximum users in mailing
list in SMTP server and if so then what is the number for that,So that
I will make my code ajustable.

If anybody knows the answer please help me.

TIA

SMTP is a protocol and as such ther'es no limit to its use I've ever known
or heard of other than bandwidth which can choke an application and the
server it is running on. Generally speaking, it takes about 2-3 seconds for
SMTP to send an email about the size of the contents of this news article.

So there should be no limit to the number of items in the list but care must
be taken to manage how many items from the list are sent during a given send
method. You can devise an algorhythm that counts the number of items in any
given list and use code to send x number items at a time to manage
performance.
