Hi Guys,

I wonder if anyone could advise?

We are setting up a web site where users can subscribe. Each day we plan to email subscribers with links to that day's news articles. Each e-mail will only be around 10Kb to 25Kb in size, but if the site goes well and we get a lot of subscribers, there could be a lot of e-mails going out. If my calculations are correct and we have say 5,000 subscribers, then we could have:

5,000 * 25Kb per day (or 122Mb of data)

We aould expect to setup a dedicated mail server to do this (for reliability etc) but does anyone have a feel for the amount of data going out - is this something that the average broadband connection could handle reliably?

If subscribers get into the tens of thousands, how would this change? I suppose if we have this many subscribers (and income) we could purchase a bigger 'pipe' to handle the traffic.

I presume that the big e-mailing houses get much more traffic than this.

Any advice greatly appreciated.

Best wishes

Dave
