I am the admin for a outdoors club and am looking for something like mailman / phplist / others?
Plus be able to send 1000 messages (as fast as possible / not 300 per hour) about 10 times per week to it's entire membership.
Any pointers on who would do this would be great!
located in Vancouver, BC Canada.

This could be achieved if you used some purpose built mailing software, such as OemPRO by octenth, configured to use another Qmail server (i've done it with qmail, others can be used) which has been tuned to hell
We've been able to send 20,000 in an hour before, worked well.. We spent ages building it tho..
For a purchased service, check out mailchimp.com MailChimp rock!

Are you sure that all mails will reach the mail box properly without bounce or failure? This rate of 20,000 an hour will trigger the smtp error from other mail servers.

You are assuming that all emails would be going to the same mail server. In all likelihood, his list is made up of email addresses from many different providers so it's not likely to overwhelm the other mail servers.
Any commercial email marketing application or service should be able to handle your needs as 1,000 emails in an hour is quite low.

My solution

I have been hosting Qmail based email server for five years. Im using on it EZML.

I wrote my own script to add approx 1500 clients to that mailing list, doing this manually is way too insane job

When i sent my newsletter, it takes only 3-5 seconds and all 1500 emails has been sent.

Well, qmail based email setup is not easy and newbie cannot do it unfortunately.

This was just a hint. However if you are not interested in above solution, any sendmail compliant email server and i can write in no time "mass mailer" script if necessary.

Donīt get me wrong, i am not any spammer! But after nine years of administrating various linux based servers, i naturally know a lot about these things

To: chenetwork

Yes i am sure they will reach it unless you are sending all of those email to same host. Results may vary depending on different email servers, depends is there set any rate limits how many email in time xxx is allowed from certain hosts etc.

Well the best and cheapest way would be using PHP.
You could use 20 - 30 GMail or any SMTP provider.
Each GMail account has a limit of 500/day

Then php can do the trick. It can use SMTP and send as many emails you would like!

I recommend using the free dadamail mailing list software. It's very good, easy to install and configure, and most importantly... works well and is reliable.

You can also specify the send rate you want... 1000/hour should be no trouble.

Good advice. PHP is always a friendly choice with a very simple mail() function. A simple loop sending one email at a time would do the job, or you could try to emulate some "multithreading" sending a few overlapping emails to cut down on the delivery time if speed is absolutely a priority.

Or just use Mailman, a proper list manager with proper bounce handling. 1000 names is not a problem for mailman at all. Best if you have a decent mail server backing it up.

Do you need Canadian hosting for this? The choices are somewhat limited in Vancouver itself but there are some, and there are many more in Toronto and Montreal. If location of the service provider isn't an issue then choice really won't be a problem at all.

I've used a few, currently use phplist, and it can deliver 1000 quite quickly.
Well within an hour...and that's on a slow machine.

You don't want it to go toooo fast, most admins even throttle this down, if you happen to have a lot of target addresses at one domain (yahoo, etc), you will actually end up delaying delivery even longer because they will deffer your connections if you hit their limit vs time (which is quite easy to do).

School of though is, if you can hit send, and it even takes a few hours, you get your mail delivered, great. At 10 a week, that's a max of 2 per working day, as long as you get everything there by the next mailing, you are good to go. Actually, the slower you can stand for them to be delivered, the higher the delivery rate is, especially with large lists. 1000 is considered small.
