Act Email - limit number of messages per connection

My email provider requires that merged emails be sent as individual emails rather than a single SMTP connection.  Currently, my emails to a distribution list get greatly delayed or never get sent at all.  Does anyone know how to llimit messages per SMTP connection in ACT?  I am using ACT Pro 2011 and it wants to send all the emails in one SMTP connection even if there are 500 or more emails.  I have ACT integrated with Outlook 2007.  I cannot find a setting in either ACT or Outlook 2007 to limit the number of messages per connection.   Does anyone have a solution?

Re: Act Email - limit number of messages per connection

There is not a way to regulate the flow using ACT.  Without using an addin, your best best is to break the group up and send them in batches.


For a tool that offers the capability to send the email in bursts. look at northwoods Mailmerge -   LINK HERE


For a full service tool that does much more, look at swiftpage  - LINK HERE
