An Exec is requesting documentation on how email routing works.

I need help locating a whitepaper describing how an email sent externally to multiple users of the same domain is sent/delivered (i.e. one email sent to external domain for multiple persons).

Specifically they want documentation showing that a single email is sent to the domain and the external email server handles distribution at the recipient end, or that our email server sends multiple emails to each of the recipients.


Thanks much

Depends. What's the receiving server?
You probably don't know.
If it's an Exchange server your Exchange will send one message addressed to a ton of people and the receiving server will take care of it.
If it isn't an Exchange server that might still happen. Worst case your server will send that one message a ton of times.
What applications, other than Exchange, do it which way? Good question. I have never seen a list of Unix mail systems that do it one way and the other.

Apart from the obvious of controlling enormous traffic flow, why does he want to know?

Not really sure you'll have luck finding a white paper describing how 50 different platforms interact with 50 other platforms.

Thanks Mark. That is pretty much what I concluded, but I wanted a second opinion.

I appreciate the reply.
