Hi all (sorry if I started this thread in a wrong section)
my task is to send a mass email (to 100-500 adresses) via ASP form. I´m doing it simpliest way I found. Cause it should be something like news letter, I put all adressess into BCC (blind or hidden copy). This form will be used in 90% with public smtp servers
like smtp.gmail and so on.
But I don´t know anything about rules and punishments which can happens when I (or customer) send mail to 500 adresses. I think its better than send 500 separated emails to each person, isn´t it?
Is there something what I should care about and how? I´m affraid that customers emails could be banned or something.

Make sure that you use a legitimate email account to send the emails through. If there is a mismatch between the MX record for the email domain and the IP of the sending server, that's usually a strong indication of phishing.
You should send individual emails rather than BCC all recipients. Also, you should only send them to poeple who have consented to receive them, or at least you should opriovide an opt out systems that works.

Thanks for your reply.
legitimate email account and smtp server are mandatory requirements to allow email sending.
I would rather put all recipient into BCC, cause it will be just kind of newsletter (each of them has to give an acknowledgement), so it´s not necessary to target each email to concrete person.
Can you be more specific about indications of phishing etc.?

As I said, if there is a mismatch between the IP of the mail server that the email is generated from, and the MX record for that domain, most spam filter software treats the email as suspicious at least, or just simply junks it. Beyond that, I can't add
anything more. I'm no expert on circumventing spam filters.
