so i was debugging my mailing list script
some mistakes come up in the foreach loop with send_email( ) function in it
As a result, it keeps sending emails like crazy (well over 100 emails within half an hour)
Now when i want to test the script again, no emails can be sent
So i would assume the web server is down because of the huge email flood
But how long would it last? And what can I do to get around it, so the pause in between the email floods could be minimized?

There are a lot of web hosts who limit the number of emails that can be sent through your account in a given period. You'd need to check the info they provide to find out what limit they have.
It is also possible that they have a second higher limit that they will increase it to if you specifically ask for it.

It will last 3 days, 6 hours, 27 minutes and 14 seconds. A piece of string is also 15 metres long :rolleyes:
The only thing you can do to get around it is to send email through another email server using smtp or something.

wow that's one inspiring news
I have googled this problem and it seems like there are some plugins may help solve the problem, like SwiftMailer, etc
could i solve this problem if i upload these files onto the web server and include them where necessary to manipulate the pausing time?
