    How can I send out 14,000 emails at once?

    Outlook express won't let me. What can I do to send out 14,000 emails at once? No, it's not a spam flood crap. It's to tell people that my site re opened.

    You could write a short php script to send em off at 500 or so every couple seconds.

    Yup, that's spam.

    Unless they specifically asked to be notified of it, of course.

    There are programs out there that will do this for you. (www.radiate.com) offers a free version of their program GroupMail. You could also check www.downloads.com for bul email programs. www.hotscripts.com might have some scripting methods which would solve your problem. One thing to keep in mind is that if you use a "program" that runs from your computer then it's your connection to the internet that is used to send. This could result in your getting slapped with bandwidth charges from your ISP.

    A better solution might be an application that runs on your webserver. This would simply use your monthly bandwidth and would not eat up your personal computer's resources.

    Mr. Popularity!

    Man, I would only have to send out about 3 e-mails if my site re-opened.

    Some guys have all the luck

    Salari, what is the site?

    I would have thought the kind of site that gets 14,000 subscribers would have enough expertise behind it to already know these kinds of things.

    So, I am curious to know what site it is and what you offer that 14,000 people want to subscribe (if, in fact, they are legitimate subscribers with an expressed interest in knowing)

    I don't wish to sound cynical, but I'm just a little... erm... cynical
