  • Mass email generation

    Hi everyone,
    I need to test a product that my company is thinking about. it is an Email archiving product. I have a test domain environment that has an Exchange 2007 fully patched, and AD etc. We have been trying to figure out the best way to generate something like 300-400 mailboxes, each with maybe 2 GB of mail in them, so we can then do our testing. We would like some to have attachments, some multiple recipients, some single etc. We want to try and replicate what we would see in a normal domain environment.

    Now for the catch, i need to start this testing tomorrow, and it has to be done within the next 10 days.

    Any thoughts would be GREATLY appreciated.

    Thanks much

    Not sure if load generator is quite what you want
    http://www.msexchange.org/articles/M...Generator.html

    but you can quite easily use importcsv to bulk create everything from CSV files (mailboxes, contacts, dls etc)
    Then you can use scripts to send emails around
    http://www.petri.com/send_mail_from_script.htm
    and then manually create a few large files and send them around, forward them again etc etc
    cheers

      You can also look at a program called GroupMail.

        Sorry Joe, you lost me on that? Assuming my first google hits for that are relevant?
