You might try something like this. First estimate the number of emails that
you can send out in 30 seconds (or however long the timeout is). Hard code
that value into your script. Use the location header method to redirect the
script back to its self sending along a new variable $row in the GET string.
This var refers to the next start row in your database.
an if() statement somewhere in there to break from the loop when you've
reached the end of your database. Doable?
