Assuming you are going to run the script from a cron job you can then vary the number of emails sent using the sleep()

Issue a sleep(50) after each email to force the script to wait 50 seconds before sending the next email. 70 emails will take 3500 seconds which is 100 seconds short of an hour. If you set your cron Job to run on the hour you should be in the ball park.

Also use set_time_limit() to ensure your script does not timeout.
After sending each email call set_time_limit(120) to ensure the server does not stop your script due to a timeout.

I would change the set_time_limit(20) to set_time_limit(60) - in other words more than your sleep time. You could also bring the set_time_limit() outside the loop as set_time_limit(3600)

Other than that the script should be fine.
