Hi, i´ve got a web with more than 5000 subscribers.
Until now we where doing the newsletter trought outlook, but we want
to make it using php, taking the data from our website´s database.

Is it safe? will i get my ip banned? do i have to keep my browser
opened until all the messages are sent, or could i set a program to be
executed every month?.


Thank you very much in advanced for the help.

Sure, this class is used to send messages to many thousands of users
every day from PHPClasses site and many other sites.

For sending messages to many users, it is better to start a PHP script
from a cron job. If you are using Linux in your server, you can edit the
crontab to add a job that executes a PHP script using PHP cli version.
