This will be a little long only because I want to explain myself fully. I’m running a Windows 2003 server with Hosting Controller, Mailenable, Coldfusion 9 and MySQL. I would like to send out mass emails to my members (50k). As of now I’m using <Cfmail> (Query) to send out the emails. All my data is stored using MySQL. My system is set up using a schedule task to read a mail script then send the emails at pre-set times. When I send out the emails they go out at a very slow rate and the script has never got through all of my emails. I created a script to make sure all of the emails in my system are correct so there will be no errors. But it seems to “time out” or just quit. Also when any of the emails are sent it goes into the spam box.
So here are my questions...
What is the best way to send about 50k emails using my server?
How to collect the bounce back emails and take them out of the system with Coldfusion?
How do I keep my emails from going directly into spam boxes?
<cfquery name="getlist" datasource="#dns#">
ORDER BY email ASC
