Sending emails in batches
Just a follow on from another recent thread now that I've at least established the problem and two possible solutions.
The problem is that with our current hosting, we cannot guarantee all emails as part of a mailshot are being sent because the script times out on the server. Unfortunately the UE methodology of trying to reset the script timeout value to zero doesn't work.
The two solutions appear to be:
1. move hosting to another provider that does not have this limitation.
2. change the script somehow so that it sends the mails in manageable batches rather than sent them as one total group.
It would be good to avoid moving hosts if possible, so I just wondered if anyone else had run into a similar issue, and if did you manage to resolve it?
