We have a portal that has 90,000 members. We usually use W2K products and this is the first time we try to use Linux.

We wrote a script with Cold Fusion which spools 1000 e-mails to Mail server every 15 minutes.

We need to send newsletter to these 90,000 people. The mail server is running great for our own e-mail addresses. But when we try to send 1000 e-mails at a time, it just returned them back. I guess there should be a settings for 'Max. lenght of queue' or number of mails that can be handled at a time.

Do you have any idea, or do you need any more info to give me an idea...

Look at
#O MaxDaemonChildren=12
#O MaxQueueRunSize=10000
in your file. Uncomment (remove the #) and update them and you should be fine (remember to restart sendmail). Hope your mail server can handle the sudden load...
