    I have a program which needs to send individual (customized) emails to
    a few thousand recipients. Using the standard approach
    SmtpMail/MailMessage method and Win 2000 server (SMTP service with
    default settings) I find it takes about 1 second per email to relay it
    through the SMTP service (that's not including time to sending). Why
    is this so slow and what can I do to speed it up? Is there a change I
    can make to machine.config or the SMTP service settings?
