Hey,

I'm using simple email_message class to send personalised bulk emails. It always stops after every 1700 emails or so and then i have to restart it again after changing the Mysql query to pick the rest of the users. I have tried SMTP class as well but same problem.

I've never had this problem before. I have used phpmailer class form phpclasses.

Could you please advise to fix for this issue. Thanks for your help and for making these classes available.

Maybe you are exceeding the PHP script execution time limit. The default is 30 seconds.

If that is the case, just use set_time_limit(0); to override the time limit. It only works if PHP is not running in safe mode.

php.net/set_time_limit

Thanks for your help

Hello!

If safe_mode is on and you are not able or willing to turn it off,
you could try to send e.g. 500 Mails at first time, send a header() to the script that is sending the Mails to start it again and to reset the php_execution_time. Now send the next 500 Mails and so on.

I've read, that this is possible, but I'm not processing that much Email in one turn ;-)

Greetings

I had a similar problem some time back -- found out my ISP had put a limit on the number of email per hour without notifiying me.
