-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 I know a lot has been discussed in this topic, but I still don't find any solution. What I want to do is send a lot of mails triggered from a web page using php. I've found diferent solutions but all of them has some problem: 1) using set_time_limit() to allow the script to run longer while sending e-mails, my prefered solution but I won't let someone waiting a lot of time with a loading browser because they'll stop, reload, and at best, just not like it. So, I would like to launch a background process changing the set_time_limit() in that process (if needed), the problem is that I wasn't able to run a background process in PHP, were you ? I know I could use at (atd) to run a background process but in my shared server, there's no at available.
2) Queuing instead of sending. I've seen that some people improved the 'sending' (well, it's not sending anymore) by queuin only. Then some people tell me that sendmails always queue and I'm a bit confused. Does sendmail queue or sends mails ? if it queue, why is it send imediatly if the queue is procesed once an hour or so ? I don't care if my mails are procesed once an hour for this mails, I don't need them to be sent imediatly. I can't change sendmail configuration (since it's a shared server) and I wouldn't want to because I have other 'mail cases' when I want to send the mails imediatly. I can't change the way PHP calls sendmail (again, it's a shared server) but I'm using PHPMailer and I can change the way PHPMailer uses sendmail, will `/usr/sbin/sendmail -O DeliveryMode=q` queue the mails I'm sending ? 3) Someone told me to do it using cron, do you have any idea of how to do it with cron ?
