What is best method of sending very large mail merge?

Given session and browser timeout issues, what would be the best way to send a very large mail merge that will take many hours (using UltimateEmail)?

  • ASP.NET asynchronous page
  • ASP.NET multi-threading
  • Web Service (.asmx)
  • WCF Service
  • Other???

FYI - Our web site is hosted on one of our servers running IIS 6.
Any help would be most appreciated.
Thanks,
Alan S.

Your choice should depend on your needs. If you want to display a page on which the user can see current status and stop the operation you definitely need an ASP.NET asynchronous page. If you don't want any user interaction a web service should suffice. Nevertheless, you should run some tests to see whether it times out with a long process in the background in a separate thread. We use a similar approach with our UltimateSearch product during the indexing process. It may run indexing for several hours in the background, and refreshes the aspx page to display status and let the user stop or cancel the operation.
