    Question will be sending 10 digits ...

    Hi,

    Below picture is from a Cisco technical document. I don't understand why Cisco uses "will be + sending".

    Why isn't it "will be send" or "will send"?
    Please help to explain, thanks.


    Note: SP stands for service provider, and "destination-pattern" is a 10 digits telephone number.

    It is fixed and the SP has no choice in the matter.

    Do you mean "will be sending" is a fixed phrase and below sentences (A, B and C) are all correct?

    A. I will be sending 10 emails to you.
    B. You will be sending 10 emails to me.
    C. SP will be sending 10 incoming calls to you/me.

    1 Yes, if this is what has been planned and you have no choice in the matter- your boss, for example, has told you to send them. The other two sound less natural to me.
