mailing 100,000 messages from linux to my members
Posted on 2012-12-26
I have a social network that I run on my Linux server. I have 200,000 members. 100,000 members have become fairly dormant. I've drafted an email to the 100,000 members encouraging them to return to the site or delete their account.
I've setup a routine to mail out this message via linux to these members at the rate of 1 ever 5 seconds.
I have set the pace to be slow so that I do not 'upset' yahoo and aol, etc. I want to avoid being black listed or something like that.
Should I be concerned about the pace at which I send messages?
I don't know if it matters, but I'm using exim.
