After trying to send an email to my Club list of 350 persons, the mail is bounced by my ISP's smtp server due to the number. Pocomail www.pocosystems.com automatically senses that the email is being sent to a large number, and offers to split the emails into smaller 'chunks', which is user defined (default is 50). At present in TB, you have to split the email addressee list into smaller groups within the address book. This is inefficient, clogs up the address book and makes updating the list a big chore.

Yes, I run into this problem a lot. It would be awesome if TB automatically split the list into smaller groups. We should be able to choose the size of the group based on the limit of our ISP. I have one active email only because it doesn't limit me. When I send a newsletter I have to switch SMTP servers. It's pretty dumb to have to operate like this.
