I am making an webpage with asp.net C#.
I want people to log on and enter in quote requests. then the quote request is emailed to all the relevant people to quote (could be 100+ people).
Obviously I can not have the user sit and wait for the 100+ people to be emailed as the webpage will freeze.
I have thought about implementing a backend program on the server. perhapes that checks for a text file or something and when that text file is there. searches the database for any un-emailed quotes. and emails to the relevant people. then marks record as emailed.
But there must be a better way? IS there a que system or something designed to do things like this?
