How "heavy" is sending 100.000 mails (mailing) for a VPS server?
Posted on 2009-04-07
We have a VPS server with 512 MB RAM on a QC Xeon running cPanel and a few simple sites.
The owner of this server wants to send a maling of about 100.000 recepients (fyi. legit receipients)
His question is.
Would such a server be able to send a high volume of mails without problems?
The mail will have images that are located on the VPS. Would this cause problems?
As we do not send such big mailings ourselfs I would like to know from mailing experts what we should consider and have in mind so the mailing is sent without problems?
Is memory the only factor? How many batches should we consider? Is there standaard (cPanel) software to do this an effective way?
Thanks in advance.
