Server Optimization, Tweaks / Mailing list 100,000 and up
« on: December 28, 2004, 11:42:04 am »
I am using my own machines on a Dedicated T-1 Line in my own office... :D

The machines are both relatively low-end Redhat Linux.  The mailer itself, which is probably most important is like a 1.2Ghz P4, with 2 regular 7200RPM IDE drives with a somewhat self-tweaked sendmail.

BTW, I love LMP and Dean has been tremendous, but I've been looking for an update now for almost 1 year with no luck... so lets hope I guess on that update.

My List is only around 150K, but I run it normally at 60-80K / hour.  Done with 2 machines, one hosts the DB, the other is a dedicated Mailer running sendmail.

Hi Guys

New to this forum - but I'm interested in hearing from anyone who uses listmailpro to send personalised text messages to large lists 300 - 400 k


I send to about 150K per day with no problems.  I have listmail on a seperate machine then the mail machine, which runs sendmail...

When sending as much email as you do you should consider employing multiple IP addresses for sending.  This is tricky, the only one who I know knows how to do it is at

I've been looking for a way to do this with sendmail.  If anyone has any info on this, let me know, thanks.


I'm looking for something to help with what I need...  I purchase a lot of opt-in email leads and I want to import them into a temporary table, send them an email asking them to double opt-in to our main/real list.

I envision in would do this (and If I knew PHP I'm sure it would be cake...):  The link in the email would be like a simple remove link, saying click this link to confirm your subscription, when clicked would open a webpage, subscribe them to our main list/send out the welcome message/then forward them to our main web page.

I've worked out a small solution, but it's very slow.  What I've done is on the import process, I changed it to make the imported users "uncomfirmed" and to send out the confirmation email right on import.  Like I said it works, but VERY slow...and sometimes times out with "Page Not Found" errors on big imports.

General Help & How-To / Importing Large Amount of Data

Just FYI, raising the limits didn't seem to work, uploading it did... didn't even notice that option, thanks.

General Help & How-To / Importing Large Amount of Data
« on: May 13, 2004, 12:11:21 pm »
I'm trying to import a large amount of emails with a large amount of data, the file size is over 8MB, as soon as I pick the filename and hit send, It goes right to:  The page cannot be displayed

Happens immediately, figured it was some kind of php limitation or something, so I upped the settings in php.ini, IE>  upload file size from 2mb to 10mb, memory usage from 8mb to 25mb.

Any other ideas?

I have a suggestion that I did on mine - I have a big list around 150K...

I noticed that each time a person clicks to remove that the DB is optimized, so if 5 people click it at once, 4 of them will be waiting a long time and may never let it finish...

I commented out the optimize part in the rem.php file, I really didn't see a huge need for it, since dailymail will optimize the table daily and I haven't had any problems since.

So if you think that may be the problem, look in the rem.php and do something like this:

Code: [Select]
// MJR Rem'd out the line to not optimize on a remove
// mysql_query("optimize table $utable");
