PHPMailer Queue

Hi,

I am using PHPMailer mailer to send Emils.
It usually works OK, but sometimes it hangs because it cannot connect to the SMTP Server (I am using Google SMTP Server).
I want to add a 'queu' process that will send it the emails in the background.
Do you know of a script that does it?

why don't you install a MTA (e.g.postfix) and use your own server as primary SMTP server. This server can then use googlemail and can provide all queuing issues.

The problem is that I send emails from my server.
Curently my server is defined as SPAM because some years ago, I used it to send emails to my clients and someone added it to black lists.
In order to bypass the problem, I now use google SMTP Server.

you can use postfix as a smart relay - so php transmits to local postfix and postfix goes to googlemail - that's one posibility.

The better solution is to get deregistered from the blacklists and then set up your server with correct IP and Reverse IP and helo string so that you are not considdered as a spam server.

But if you have a dynamic IP then you should use the googlemail solution.

brb6708Commented:
go to http://www.mxtoolbox.com/SuperTool.aspx , choose tab "Blacklists" and enter your ip. You get a list of blacklists each with the information "ok" or "listed". if listed, then click Detail and you'll get information about the blacklist and what to do to get rid of it.

Thanks.
In any case, I still want to get hold of a "queue script".

if Google smtp allows your server ip you are fine installing an smtp server on it and use that as a queue.. what os are you using?

a few years back seems strange though most blacklists cleanup after a few weeks of no reports ..

I use Linux.
It is very strange because I also sent a request to the blacklists few years ago to remove me, and it didn't help. I think they just ignore these requests.

brb6708Commented:
I don't think, they ignore those requests, but they deny to remove ip addresses which are reported again and again.

Do get forward: Do you have dynamic ip or fixed.

If fixed go the direct smtp way:

establish a DNS entry pointing to your server and setup the correct reverse DNS entry (is normally done by your provider)
make your SMTP server send the correct helo string (in postfix ist's the hostname variable) it must match your host name

After that you should be able to use your server as smtp server without complaints as long as nobody blames you to send spam mails. But that is not a technical problem.


If your Ip is dynamic go the gmail way. You'll find detailled setup descriptions using google. Here's one that I used before.
