At the risk of beating a dead horse, but you really should consider
using SMTP instead if you are really going to be sending a lot
of messages.  I think you will find it more reliable and much faster.
It also eliminates the need for ANY email client to be on the machine
that is sending the messages.

Here is a link to a class that wraps everything up very nicely.  You
should be able to be sending SMTP emails with it in 10-15 minutes.
It supports binary attachments as well.
