Sending email in a loop using Jutility::SendMail

Post by sochdeveloper » Mon May 02, 2011 5:21 pm

l am trying to send an email to a list in batches of 50.

The problem is when l get the emails from the database and then loop through sending emails l experience email bombarding i.e l get about 12 emails to one emails.

l have got something like below.
$sql = SELECT `email` FROM `#__members` WHERE `premium` = '1' LIMIT 50
$db->setQuery($sql);
$res = $db->loadObjectList();
//l import the mailer here
foreach($res as $r)
{
$emailto = $r->email;
then l send the email here using Jutility::Sendmail()
}
l skipped the actuall code because l know the code is correct so l just gave the logic l am following
