Large lists and speed
Hi GT folks,

I'm in the market for an MLM for quite some time now and am seriously considering your product. I already have linksSqL and GMail and I adore both.

We have very large mailing lists (1 million plus subscribers) growing daily by 1000s.

The dedicated server will have GMail and Glist and GCommunity only and is a dual Pentium IV 2.0 GHZ with 1 GB of RAM. Modperl is installed and works great with GMail.

1) How fast will the messages be sent out. I guess I am looking for a rate i.e how many expected per hour. Can I for example expect 500,000 emails delivered per hour assuming email are sent when there is virtually zero activity with GM (2:00am-6:00 am)?
2) I am aware of some products out there that send email via sockets. Any thoughts on this regard? Does GL do this?
3) What would be the added performance benefit of adding an extra GB of RAM to server?
4) Is there a benefit of using something other than sendmail, e.g. postfix or qmail?
5) With users ability to have their own lists, is this a paid service we can offer? Can you please explain this further?

The server is hooked on a superfast 10 mbps dedicated connection and so there is no bandwidth restriction.


Thanks

Frank
