There are just about as many answers to that questions as are there solutions to your problem. If you give us a better idea of the nature of this mailing list, it would help. Size? Is it unidirectional (i.e., your client sends out and that's it)? Etc. Personally, I am rolling my own, in a sense, and using phpmailer (phpmailer.sf.net) for the actual sending. phpmailer doesn't support queueing yet, so you would need to build that in (but I personally like handling my own queueing anyway). See the other thread I started about queueing / batch-sending if you go this route. But, like I said, there are a plenty of full-blown mailing list apps out there. If you give us more detail, someone an surely help you out. -- Matt Warden Miami University Oxford, OH, USA http://mattwarden.com This email proudly and graciously contributes to entropy.
