We've recently put a clients website into silverstripe and they are planning on sending a promotional email to just over 12000 customers, has anyone tried sending an email to a group this large using silverstripe before. And do you think silverstripe is capable of sending this many email?
Also we are limied to sending 400 emails an hour is there a built in method of doing this or would we need to custom build this?

I am using the newsletter module for a customer. We are sending out a couple of thousand mails per run, well below 5k in total. The module is still pretty beta I'd say ; it works, but sometimes it displays weird behavior when sending mails. Personally, I would not depend on it for large amounts of mail at this point but rather use something like OEMPro...
Just my 2 cents ; maybe a core-dev can say something about the current status and the future of the newsletter module.

I'm curious to hear from Silverstripe (the company) how they view the module in the "grand scheme of things" (moving towards an "application framework" and all) anyway. I don't know whether or not it is worth it to spend a lot of development on a newsletter module (and compete with the likes of OEMPro for example) ... This seems like a typical candidate-module to "spin off" to the community...
To be clear ; I'm just speculating and did not have contact with Silverstripe about this ....
