    PHP automated emails effect on server load?

    Hi all,
    I've set up a system on our website using PHP and mySQL where various actions trigger automatic email to be sent. My boss loves this but has now become a little 'auto-email' addicted! I think he can see his workload dropping as he can get all of these processes automated through the site
    Now I don't necessarily disagree with him but I was just wondering whether this puts a lot of pressure on our server? We only have an alloted amount of space on our institution's server.

    Thanks for your advice/comments.

    P.S. If this is the wrong forum, apologies .. wasn't sure if it came under PHP or hosting

    What sort of quantities are we talking about? If it's a few hundred a day then heck no... a few million then yes maybe. Also it wouldn't be so much a space thing either, more resources.

    Resources can include processor load and bandwidth usage.
