Phil, thanks for your suggestions. This is the server of the future, all right :(...I guess decent e-mail performance is an unworthy component of e-business. Oh, I know...CFINT controls it to make sure e-mail is delivered promptly. I assume Lotus Notes uses the same API and I assume their performance is somewhat better. I guess I'll stop MSF and restart it and see if I can figure out what's up.... -----Original Message----- From: firstname.lastname@example.org [mailto:email@example.com]On Behalf Of Phil Sent: Monday, September 10, 2001 3:51 PM To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: RE: QTMMSENDMAIL performance Reeve, MSF performance is a complaint often voiced. If you're sending only one e-mail address at a time to the API then you may want look at sending an array of e-mail addresses. This may speed things up if you're sending the same e-mail to 100's of recipients. If you're timing the mail delivery you probably should start counting when the e-mail hits your firewall. Then you'll be able to tell where the bottleneck is. Maybe your firewall can log when smtp mail passes through it?
