don't know if this will help you I have a book on php, mysql and Apache and they talk about fsockopen
They have a section called Q&A
Q How can I ease the burden on my mail sever?
A Besided looking into package mailing list software, you can bypass the mail() function and talk directly to your SMTP server via a socket connection. The orginal path was http://www.php.net/manual/fsockopen
but it did not open for me so I did a seach and found this
take a look at the php.net site.
http://us2.php.net/manual/en/function.fsockopen.php

you will have to do some scrolling to find info on emails

Hope it will work for you
