Allowing scripts to run without some kind of time limit may not be prudent,
but settling for the timelimit imposed on online web pages is not reasonable
either. I would recommend you reset the time limit to something reasonable
to perform your email tasks on the computer you have available.
As long as you don't have a "run away" program, I can't think of any reason
not to allow it to have the time it needs to get the job done.

I would like to setup a mailing list for my company.
I have a database containing email address of my clients along with other
How can I send them mails ?
If i write a script containing the mail function and loop the address, I
think that might generate a script timeout error. I feel increasing the
script timeout is not a good solution. I would like to know how you manage
such situations. I feel this is a common problem but i didnt find any
solution on the net. Do I need to use any sw or are there any already
Thanks a Lot !!
Long Live PHP !!
Thanks & Regards,
