With such amount it is possible to take you as spam or put your server in the blacklists ... Try to use a shipping line but at a very low rate!

You have to go to » Administration Center » News and Newsletters » Newsletters to send the newsletters. And to define the tail you have to go to » Administration Center » Mail » Settings ... With such recommended amount 1 per minute (usually I always use 3 and I have no problems) for the amount you have to send!

Whith such amounts of e-mails I would consider a mysql query for all email addresses, if you have access to mysql and would like a list of all e-mails, let me know. I am on my.phone now, I have the required query written on my laptop.

Richard... why would they need to do that?
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.

Oops, I've misread, I read something about batches, but the SMF queue can be seen as a batch.

gmail and hotmail (and others) will probably put you on a deferred list meaning your mails might take days to actually be delivered. Especially if your email server is not setup up with DMARC/DKIM. I encountered the problem until i correctly set up my mail server so as to send those headers, else my emails got deferred a lot.

Gmail or hotmail are not very good choices to use for this kind of mailing, because they easily label you a spammer too - unless you follow their rules to the letter. Especially Gmail.

I'm not suggesting using hotmail or gmail as a sending service, but those providers block incoming mails from "low security/low reputation" servers for hours sometimes more.

With such amounts is to put your server in a list of safe spammer unless you pay for services do it for you (the only free I know admits 2k no more). With gmail I have had some problems although I have a limit of 250 to 300 emails per day approximately and because it is an account I used it for years just for that ...
