    OK,

    I need to send out an email WITH an attachment to my partners (about 7,000). how can I best do this? when I did this MANY years ago there was a software that did it and only added one name to the "to" field at a time.
    Now I understand that there are services that I should use instead like sparklist (which is used by sitepoint as a matter of fact) to send out their newsletter.
    Is this expensive? easy? should it be used in my case?
    Where is a good place to start (other links aside from sparklist are more than welcome)

    1. do I upload my list of (lets say clients) somewhere?
    2. do I do it all here at the office

    Any assistance or pointing in the right direction would be VERY welcome.

    It depends on some of the other details of your situation, but I don't think it would be a good idea to send out a regular old email with an attachment to roughly 7,000 people. All I can offer in terms of advice on the subject is that I know several people who use SparkList (I believe SP's own Tech Times newsletter uses it), and they all seem happy with it.

    HI there,

    Is there a problem for you to do BCC?
    If not, there is a solution,

    Do you run some sort of newsletter on your site?
    If yes, you just need to make a little adjustments.

    At Bizwhat.com, we are doing the same thing. The attachment is supported bu our newsletter program. We are doing the next:
    1. in to: we write: BizWhat Office
    2. In BCC we PASTE addresses.

    3. Drink a cup of tea. )

    That is all... but 7000 will last a while...
