Hey everyone - need some advice.
I'm working on a website for a client and there is functionality where users can sign up for "lessons" that are to be sent to them based on a schedule they select via email. The sign-up and scheduling aspects are written in PHP and the user / lesson text data is stored in MySql. What I still need to do is write something to send the emails out on a daily basis. Should I use PHP to do this? Or is there something else I could/should use? I need to make sure the emails are not marked as SPAM, meaning they need to pass any reverse domain look-up tests. The process needs to perform well and be stable as well.
Any advice you could give would be greatly appreciated!

You can do this using the php mail functions, but if your sending to potentially a lot of people Id advise you to look at the PEAR mailer class which handles the whole pocess much more nicely.
