Email List and SQL Server question

Discussion in 'Pre-sales questions' started by beamedin, Aug 1, 2010.

  1. Hello,

    I'm currently evaluating Winhost for longer-term hosting. Two questions:

    - What is the best way to manage a mailing list used to distribute newsletters and the like? Obviously, it is easy to build a mail sender, but are there restrictions on the number of emails that can be sent or the number of BCC recipients or any other challenges? Likely 1k-5k maximum recipients, sent once or twice a month at most.

    - We'd like to use TransactionScopes from the System.Transactions namespace in conjunction with some LINQ to SQL code to manage database transactions. However, this requires MSDTC to be enabled on the SQL I correct in guessing you do not allow this?

  2. The limit for recipients is 40. The limit on mail is 1000 per hour, with a 5000 per day maximum.

    Correct, we do not support MSDTC.
