Default Is there queing facility available in CDO?

 I am designing a website where I need to send email to more than 5000 members at a time. It is not possible to include all these email address in BCC and execute it because of 2 important reasons:
1. It takes very long time to execute and the output that is to be displayed is delayed.
2. The script execution time given by my webhost is 30 seconds. Which is not possible to send bulk emails.
So, I want piece of program that can put this 5000 emails in the que and get back immediately to display the output to my users. I want the program to use CDO. please help me..

BCC - not a good option.

I assume your addresses are in a data base? Just treat it like a normal loop and execute your mail script each time. The following assumes you have a connection string called conn:
dim myAddresses
sql = [get all the addresses in a record set]
set myAddresses = conn.execute(sql)
if not myAddresses.Eof
   do until myAddresses.Eof
      [now execute your mail script - CDO, CDONTS - any method that works]
   response.write "No records found"
end if

;;;The script execution time given by my webhost is 30 seconds. Which is not possible to send bulk emails

Im very sure the default is 90 seconds, you get what you pay for with hosting. Anyhow - using the method above this is not a problem.
