The mail() function isn't really suitable for hundreds of mails (well,
unless you decide to put them all at once in a To/CC/BCC header, in which
you're just asking to consider you as a spammer).

For the sending of individual emails the manual has this to say:
Note: It is worth noting that the mail() function is not suitable for
larger volumes of email in a loop. This function opens and closes an SMTP
socket for each email, which is not very efficient.

For the sending of large amounts of email, see the » PEAR::Mail, and »
PEAR::Mail_Queu e packages.
So either use them, or build your own using fsockopen. Then again,
hundreds isn't that much relatively speaking. When considering a multiple
of (tens, hundreds, etc.) thousands (who offcourse all would have to be
opped in) there are specialized companies to handle this for you.

Hi, all. Sorry, first off, for the kidna weird selection of crossposted groups, but this question touches on aspects of discussion in each of the groups. So I have a group of around 500 email addresses to which I would like to send a mass email occasionally. The group will never be much larger than 500 email addresses and will occasionally be about half that size. I have written a simple HTML interface and PHP backend to process the...

I want my users to send emails from a Windows app that I am developing in Visual Basic.NET 2003. I found a good example of sending email to a SMTP server using the SmtpMail class. However, using this, it seems, that the user must install IIS on their computer. Isn't there a class that will detect whatever mail server is available on a computer and use that? How do I create this functionality without having the user add any other...

I need to send order confirmation emails through my asp.net storefront. With my Asp 3.0 sites I use cdonts with no issues. I've researched the system.web.mail asp.net way and haven't got it to work. It boils down to the online smtp server declaration. I say a solution to active relay on the mail server but in the next sentence it said doing this may open your server up to spam relays. Not what I want to do. I've tried using cdonts...

hi all, I would like to understand which are the best ways to send bulk mailings like for newsletters and so on ( not spamming, always to receivers who opt-in ). I am not looking for code for now , I have found some very interesting classes and I also have my own scripts, I just want to know all the options available and why one is better of another .

Hi: I have a shared function for sending Email using SMTP. It works fine in a ASP.NET web application. But when I use it in a VB.Net Windows application, it always gave me an error: "Could not access 'CDO.Message' object."

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
