Im currently developing a Mass Mail application to send HTML
match alerts to 100,000+ users. The mail that is sent is fairly
large up to 80 - 90 kb and during testing I am seeing results of 5
seconds per mail (based on 2500 mails sent). A query is executed
before each <cfmail> (within a loop) to get the current
members appropriate matches (this query only takes 100ms).
I have only ever really sent text based email to this many
users before so I am wondering if the results i'm getting are
If i was to send 100,000 emails it would take nearly 140
hours for all the emails to send.
What is the typical duration you would expect to send 100,000
HTML mails (80 kb)? Is the only way to spped this process up to
limit the mail to 40 kb?
If anyone has any relevant information please reply!
