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.

Thank you.
