SMTP vs E-mail Client for FM 10 pro

Post

Hi Gang, we are trying to send emails to 800 people who have signed up to receive info about an upcoming green expo conference in LA.

 

We have FM 10. it is on my iMac, we do  not have  FM Server. Just my iMac.

We have Verizon internet and we are hosted by GoDaddy.

 

We tested our email  system using inter-office emails with SMTP and sent 3 emails at once to ourselves for testing and everything went out and was received just fine.

 

We then sent out about 140 emails using SMTP, each email had a 1MB pdf attachement. I don't think all the SMTP ones ended up being delivered, (no "out of office" replies or bad emails came back) so we switched over to E-Mail Client and re-sent the 140 emails. Then we got some "out of Office" and a few bad emails.

 

It is easy, but how do I know if the emails actually went out? How could we send interoffice SMTP and have it work just fine, then have it "apparently" not work on 140 emails?

 

What are the Pros & Cons of each system? Why do we need 2 systems? Is there a tutorial somewhere?

 

Scratching my head with both hands...
