Currently setup is with Unix client machine running batch process, connecting to our Windows email server (non-ICS). The version of our Windows email server software only limits concurrent outgoing connections, not how many connections to each receiving server. So our batch process is sending 20 emails (for example) to one email because of the batch process, our windows email server receives all 20 fine, but this then causes 20 connections to an external receiving email server for the same email address from our server, which in general email servers don't like. > > I have the feeling that it should be possible to make a mail queuing > > program with ICS, it would need to be able to: > > 1) Receive in emails - multiple concurrently. > > 2) Add emails received to 1 of many out queues based on to address > > (which send out based on time delay). > > 3) Report on queue lengths via an http page. > > I'm fiddling with the OverbyteSmtpServer demo > That is designed to receive SMTP emails only, not send them.

I will have to link components from step 1 and 2 with my own code. I'm not always comfortable with multi-threading, but hope I come right.
