We are working a global media company who wishes to send a hundred thousand emails each month to is sunscribers.
I beleive the number of subscribers would be in the range of 150,000. They need these mails to reach within a specific time
length. (like few hours before their official movie launch etc) .
I need to know if this would be faster over a mail server using php/mysql on our windows 2000 server in the data center
or would it be faster using mail client software like the ones at www.mailutilities.com
The server is a Windows 2000 server with 1 gig of RAM and 2.4 GHZ processor. How many mails per hour would such a machine fire approximately.
Is there any optimisatoin possible?. The emails are same message to all, no personalisation. If yes can some one write here the method/code to optmise the sending of emails in bulk.
