[PHP] Thoughts Please About Design Strategy for Club Mailing List





I am building a LAMP site on a shared server, Hostpapa, and I want to be able to send emails to a mailing list. I have build sites before, but a mailing list is new to me.

Sendmail and cron are not available in this environment.

I will have a table for member data, including their email address.

I currently have 40 members, and expect to grow to no more than 200.

Members will join through a web form, and I want to update the table with a “pending” status.

Using data in the table, I want to send emails to each member. I am wondering about load.

Will the PHP mail() function be OK? Do I have to be concerned about timeouts?

I would like to send a discrete email to each member. Or is just a big BCC going to work?

Anything else I should think about?

Thanks in advance.
