Hi all.
We are running GW2012 client, with GW2012 backend (on OES2SP3), all running on Win7sp1_64, 4GB Ram.
Every week, someone in our Admin area needs to email 700+ external recipients (parents).  They paste the addresses into BCC and send.  Often GW comes back with 'not responding' at the GW client.  I understand that it takes so long, Win7 might think it has timed out.  But, what do you do in your environment?  Is there a better way to do this?  

Looking for any advice.
