I have written the VBA code to send 20 different Emails to my clients from MS Access using MS Outlook. The code works fine - It attaches a different PDF file based on client name.

My concern is if I send 20 Emails in a span of 1 second through VBA, do I run the risk of getting banned by my server? Will my server think I am sending spam E-mails.

If yes what other options are available? Any information or insight into this would be very helpful.

Please note all of my Emails are actual business E-mails and content is very legitimate.

Many Thanks in advance.

Hi Diane,

Thank you very much for your reply. This is very helpful.

If possible can you quickly let me know what server filters and configuration I should look into?

Many Thanks for your help once again.

It depends on who your mail host is. If you have your own smtp server, then it's probably not going to be a problem.
