Mass Mailer - Sleep or count...?


Recommended Posts



I have a system where users can invite up to 250 people to attend an event. The problem is that I do not want to send 250 mails all at the same time so I used a script that does the following:

// Send Mail:
	$i = 0;
	while ($i <= $Number) {

And then sends the mail until the number reaches 250.


I added a sleep if the number reached "X" or "Y" but that simply held up the page and returned an error so I am thinking that perhaps instead of sending the mail immediately I push them into a database and then run a CRON job every few seconds to send a bunch of the mails.
