From personal observation - not many admins use this feature on large forums. However, if you're concerned that your host will have issues you need to ask them what their rules are on something like this.  And as for the recipient email servers - I know of one that considers monthly bank reminders as black-listable spam but lets porn solicitation and viagra ads through.  Angry

There should be a provision for creating a CSV file with all the email addresses that should then be import-able into an email client or able to be broken up for use in an email client like Outlook or Thunderbird.
  

If you only have one solution to a problem you're not trying hard enough!

Hi,

I have yabb2.5 and would like to send an important announcement to a few thousand forum members.

Questions

Do admins ever use this feature?

Does it cause recipient email servers to consider this spamming?

Is there a potential to be black listed due to the number of emails sent at one time?

Does the feature send small randomly sized batches of emails with a delay between each batch or all at one time?

Thanks in advance if anyone can help

Tim
