Sending newsletter to large emails

Posted 05 October 2009 - 03:21 AM

Hello,

I created a newsletter on my website and try to send it to my 500 subscribers. But it seems that only the first 50 emails on my database got the newsletter. And I found out that because we are in a shared hosting there is a limitation set in sending emails. There is a limit of 50 emails per 5 minutes and 200 per hour. So, I modify my sending script and use sleep() function. It sends 50 emails then sleep for 5 minutes then send then sleep and so on. But I know that this is not a good idea most of all when your subscribers turns to thousand. So can you recommend any method/solution for me to send a large size of emails in one go. I'm using PHP.

Thank you very much.

Science problem is on your hosting the only hosting provider will solve this problem. (My opinions) :D

Use an external SMTP server, your host's SMTP Server won't have restrictions (usually). You could also always use Gmail's, etc.
