Slow for send out email

Dear all,

I've wrote a Java Program to send out email for around 15,000 mails, however I found that's really slow, it needs over 3 hours to send out by use Linux and sendmail on PIII 533 with 512MB RAM, can anyone help? Here is the looping of the program:

                        while (rs1.next()){
                                if(count%mailed == 0)
                                        {
                                                try{
                                                        Thread.sleep(sleepTime);
                                                }
                                                catch(InterruptedException e){
                                                        System.out.println("Sleep interrupted:"+e);
                                                }
                                        }
                                to = rs1.getString("vc_val");
                                jsendMail sendmail=new jsendMail(to, from,mailhost,subject);
                                sendmail.setMessage(fileContent1);
                                sendmail.startSend();
                                count++;
                                if(count%100 == 0){
                                        System.out.println(count + " mails sent");
                                }
                        }


while sleepTime is use for delay to slow the program to avoid sendmail open too much copies to receive data and jsendMail is a class to send out mail by using Java Mail.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Ok I suggest you this procedure
     
     
      while (rs1.next()){

                               to = rs1.getString("vc_val");
                               vect.add(to); //add addresses to vector object first, do not execute mail sending program here
                       }

                   for(int i=0;i<vect.size();i+=1)// call mail sending program as new thread process
                   {
                                SendMailThread smt=new SendMailThread(vect.getAt(i));
                                        smt.start();
                                       if(i%50==0)  //sleep the mail process after it calss 50 send mail processes
                                      {
                                              try{
                                                       Thread.sleep(sleepTime);
                                               }
                                               catch(InterruptedException e){
                                                       System.out.println("Sleep interrupted:"+e);
                                               }
                                     }

                   }




And you need to write send mail thread class where you can send mail to the address that is fetched from the vector object

hope you got the idea

if any problems are there in coding, sorry for that, but i suggest the idea of threading
and this is better process

public class SendMailThread extends Thread {

    private String to;
      String from, mailhost,subject, fileContent;

    public Producer(String to,String from, String mailhost, String subject, String fileContent) {
        this.to = to;
            // and other initailsations goes here liek this.from and blah blah blah
    }

    public void run() {
        jsendMail sendmail=new jsendMail(to, from,mailhost,subject);
                               sendmail.setMessage(fileContent1);
                               sendmail.startSend();
            try {
                sleep((int)(Math.random() * 100));
            } catch (InterruptedException e) { }
        }
    }
}



class YourProgram
{
      public static void main(String s[])
      {
            // your other codes
            while (rs1.next()){
                               if(count%mailed == 0)
                                       {
                                               try{
                                                       Thread.sleep(sleepTime);
                                               }
                                               catch(InterruptedException e){
                                                       System.out.println("Sleep interrupted:"+e);
                                               }
                                       }
                               to = rs1.getString("vc_val");
                               SendMailThread sendmailT=new SendMailThread(to, from,mailhost,subject,fileContent1);
                                             sendmailT.start();
                               count++;
                               if(count%100 == 0){
                                       System.out.println(count + " mails sent");
                               }
                       }
      }
}

Why are you sending out 15,000 emails?

Can I say now that my penis size is fine, I am not interested in seeing your 18th birthday, and if I am on your list, could you remove me :-(
