Thanks Maeltar. A cron job is the way i want to go eventually but at present i dont think my hosting package has it. Therefore i wanted to do something to better process real time bulk mail sending. I am sure i read somewhere that if you use the standard php mail() function and loop it to send for example 50 emails it runs like a dog as its opening,processing then closing the mail protocol or something as opposed to just opening the protocal sending 60 emails then closing it again. Not particularly well explained but its clear looping on the php mail() function is causing some kind of processing issues around how the mail protocol works on the php installation. Needinhg a quick fix and i believe phpMailer will do that but looking on guidance re. how best to use.
