How to send emails at a regular interval

Dear experts,

I'm trying to figure out a way to send emails at a regular interval, say every 15 seconds, so spam filters won't mark them as spam. I've got my email addresses in a text file which is loaded into a PHP array. Then, they're just sent to the mail server using the mail function.

My problem is, Apache times out when by the time I get to the third email because I used the sleep function for the delay. I was thinking AJAX and/or JavaScript would be useful, but so far all I've found where countdown scripts to a specific time in the future. Any ideas on how this can be solved/improved?

I'm developing this under a Windows XP system.
