Is it reasonable to use the mail function to send 3000 mails

Postby spartan7 » Thu Sep 15, 2005 9:15 pm

Hi all

Is it reasonable to use the mail function to send 3000 mails at a time?

If I have 3000+ contacts in my database and I need to send email emails, how would I do it using PHP? I havnt used the mail function to send to so many people before and I'm wondering if its reasonable to do so.

Thanks

Yeh... i think so!
Use Cc or Bcc to send copies... instead of a loop to send each one :)

However on some systems you will still need to send it in parts: like 50-100 emails per time.. that sucks actually...
