You can do all in PHP if you do things more efficiently. One thing that 
you should avoid at all costs is personalization. Once you do that, you 
can just queue a single message to all subscribers, instead one per 

Another point is to have a DBM like database just to cache the 
subscribers addresses. Such databases are much faster to query than MySQL.
