Email server 300 mails per hour mailing list 2000+ users works out at 7.2 hours to send

Looking into another FREE way to send mass mails, Easy if we pay for it but money coming in goes to the big tin boat not the IT Dept

...and quite right too. Interesting to learn about it all though, I had no idea that it worked like that.

7.2 hours I wouldn't see as being a problem, when you think how often the diary is changed and it could run through the night, It's not like everyone will be at their computer when the mail enters their inbox, plus if everyone logged onto the site at the same time, that would throttle our bandwith also.

Thanks for another great diary, Bill. Though you lost me bit at the AFRC...or was it the PRL...whatever! I'll have another go tomorrow when my brain cools down. :roll:
Impressed that everyone around that table is looking in such good order that far into a skinful - all except for Girl who clearly needed assistance to stop her landing in a heap on the floor. At least I was impressed until I scrolled down to the Ike and Tina Turner picture. :shock:

What was left out of the diary was that Rob and Bill were sing to Ernie (the fastest milkman in the west)

The karaoke there was simply dreadful, until Bill did his standard Robbie Williams and everyone was suddenly looking around with interest. But then he blew it by singing 'Ernie' with Rob- they nearly cleared the place out!

What can I say... I like the karaoke. It's just another technical challenge - trying to get a difficult number note-perfect. But there's not much to be gained from singing Ernie, I have to admit.

Got to agree with Mike reference the karaoke. Bill did ruin the rendition of Ernie somewhat. I think i will have to go solo on that in future. :lol: :lol: :lol: . Great night otherwise though.
