I am not sure exactly which topic this post should go under...
Here is what I am doing.
I have a web form where a person will edit their blog article. At some point, once they are done editing, they can click a button "Publish Blog Now".
Once the blog is published in the click event on the server side I am doing a query to get a list of subscriber email address.
These are people who subscribed to this blogger and wish to receive an email notification whenever this person publishes a new blog.
What I just realized today is that my hosting provider only allows me to send a maximum of 200 emails per hour. Which means in my loop I need to sleep for roughly 20 seconds between each email notification sent. But I dont want the user who clicked the publish
button to have to sit there and wait while that process is going.
How can I return to the user but yet continue to run some code on the server side to send out the emails in the background even if user closes web browser?
This is an ASP.NET web application targeting .net 4.0 and I am using c# as my back-end language and VS2010 as my development tool.
