That's 12 e-mails per second.  Most ISPs will not permit that - I cannot imagine someone who wasn't a spammer needing to send out that many messages per day.

sure, depending on the size of the emails, the scripts in use to send them, his uplink speed and the repercussions of his internet provider.

It's certainly possible on that spec if you can find a willing ISP.
What concerns me more is he's low budget but wants to send out a million emails a day.
Sounds like a wannabe spam merchant to me - are you really sure you want to help this guy?  :-)
