Server Optimization, Tweaks / MySQL Upgrade Error Line on Dailymail
« on: January 23, 2011, 08:43:19 am »
I recently upgraded my MYSQL from 4.1 to 5.1x.  Ever since I have noticed that when daily mail runs.  I see this error line:

Warning: mysql_free_result(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in /home/mysite/public_html/listmail/dailymail.php on line 485

I'm guessing it's a depreciated error.  Everything is working the error just pops up.  Any ideas guys?

Thanks for any input.

Email Web Hosting / To VPS or not?
« on: November 28, 2007, 06:20:38 am »
Hey Dean and Company,

My 2 dedicated servers are starting to max out email wise.  I'm sending close to 150K emails every other day to my opt-in lists.

I was thinking of purchasing a VPS package from somebody for 1 or 2 of my lists.  Could I send to a 150K emails via VPS, once a week.  I could throttle it to send over 1-3 days, no problem.  Is that do-able?

Any recommendations on VPS hosts?

Everybody seems to love:

General Help & How-To / Migrating from Cpanel to Plesk
« on: July 27, 2007, 11:57:48 am »
I'm moving all my accounts from my 2001 Pentium 3 to a Dual Core.  My host requires me to go from Cpanel to Plesk.  I previously had Exim configured using Dean's settings, it worked like a charm is there any customization need on Plesk.

Anybody run into any problems when migrating like this?

Any input is much appreciated.

General Help & How-To / Unconfirmed IPs

Testimonials, Feedback / The Best I Have Used.
« on: March 18, 2006, 06:41:42 am »
This has got to be the best list software I have ever used.  I have been sending an email newsletter out since 1996 now to over 150,000 opt-ins a week.  

I have used about 10 different programs / services for my list over the years.  And nothing can compare to power, support, and super low price of ListMail.

ListMail I have been using for about the last three years and it is the most reliable system I have ever used.

The best thing is that Dean constantly supports his customers.  He follows the industry and always posts tips for getting the max response out newsletters. Also, god forbid your host screws with something, Dean is always there for a quick answer.

Keep it up Dean, you rule!

« on: October 21, 2005, 10:55:37 am »
Hey Dean,

Just wondering how non-confirms are handled.  I have it set to confirm users.  

Are those users who don't confirm removed for the database after a while?

1000 Thanks

Development, Suggestions / Pause Sending.
« on: May 15, 2005, 06:31:06 pm »
My list has gotten so big that I can't send it to my queue without clogging up the directory close to 95%.  Is there a way to pause while sending an email out?   That way I could let the server catch up a bit and then send it out in multipe batches.

General Help & How-To / Export Users Not Working.
« on: October 02, 2004, 08:16:05 pm »
Everytime I try to export users, I have to download to my local computer via FTP.  I also only get a partial list of my users.  I have 104,703 in my list and just over 65,000 show up in the CSV file.

It was working fine up to 100,000 users.

Any idea how to remedy this?

General Help & How-To / Server said:503
« on: August 09, 2004, 05:40:57 am »
I upgraded to the newest version about 2 months ago and everything has been running real smooth.  Then today, in the middle of mailing 98,000 people, I got this errror:

Sending error. Check your mail settings.

Queue Row: queueid=5eb38bda9ae340dbb6736495fae2b294 msgtype=1 userid=74854 msgid=85 email=)

Server said:503 valid RCPT command must precede DATA


It look to me like I have a dead email address some where in there.  With a ")", but I searched for ")" in the list and I can't find it.  Any idea what to do?  I can't mail to my list?

I'm using Cpanel.  They just came out with a new version that slowed down the delivery rate, but it has a new security patch, so I have to keep it.  

I have a list of about 100,000 prior to the upgrade it would take 24 hours (4-5K delivered per hour) to send out to the list totally.  Now it takes about 4-5 days (1-2K delivered per hour).  Any idea how I can speed this up?  Please help?

I love listmailpro.  I've been using it for a two years and loving it!
