    When a mass mail is sent by my accounts it keeps crashing the cpsrvd server. The cpu and memory are high. I was advised that by adding an extra 1gb of ram would help (now 2gb), however i am still getting the same problems. The mail is set to 300 mails per hour and all bounced mails go to blackhole.
    Can anyone please advise me on how to configure this properly so that i don't get failures, i am at my wits end with it now.

    Sending Mass Emails

    We have clients who do similiar things on our servers. By what method are you sending emails. Are they coming from an on server script or by a mail client at the desktop. Also how are the emails per hour being limited. 300 seems awful low. Are there any attachement or anything else being sent to make the emails large?

    Hi, the mails are being sent by script. Most of the accounts use vbulletin forums like this one and there are a few phpbb forums. The mails are just text with no attachments and they are being restricted to 300 per hour per account from whm tweak settings.

    Might be forums

    It might be the forums that are causing the problems. I mean we send out thousands of email s an hour sometimes and we have no problems. Forums on the other hand are notorious for having a high impact on servers. Might want to search for that.

    Wassup!

    Tweak exim or whatever server you are using. Disallow nobody mail. Look in logs.

    Also you have crashes with core files left on hdd?

    Debug them.

    Respekt.
