    I have tried to post a newsletter out to all clients on my database. Its approx 170,000 in total.

    Every time i try to do this i get errors as it has timed out etc. Is there a way to set this up so they can be sent in batches of say 2000, or is there an upgraded version of the software that can cope with this large number of emails to send?

    Any help greatly appreciated

    I would contact your host to seek info on adjusting php time outs which can be done in your php.ini file. However there are also SMTP Relay limits for sending mail from your sever typically. You will need to verify this is possible on your server also, that is over the limit for most shared hosting providers.

    Thanks for the info, contact host and they blocked it as they weren't happy with the volume of emails going through server.

    Do you have any other suggestions as to how i can send this number of emails?

    for that volume you need to really be using a mail service or dedicated server with a large amount of smtp relays... but no info on this forum for that specifically. :)
