I would appreciate some feedback. I am writing a script to fire off
emails in HTML or text format to everyone in a mailing list. It works
no problem - but I am concerned with how many emails it can deal with
over time.

The script has no timeout setting, I am not sure if it needs one. It
fires off 100 emails, pauses for 1 minute using sleep(60), and then
fires off another 100. It sends the mail using mail(). I did my first
send the other day to 930 addresses and it worked fine.

My question - is this going to work for a few thousand emails? What
about 100,000? Would it be better to send the mail directly to the
smtp server? Can you foresee any problems?

I look forward to your reply...
