Email All Users In MySQL Database

May 20, 2011

I want to email eveyone in my DB when a new Event is created by a member. I have a test code which I used to make sure it works and it sends to 5 email addresses (which is all of them) in the test table. This works fine. All members with a 0 get the mail. So I now just took the code and changed the table name (obviously!!) and put it in my live site which has 50 members so far. It now doesn't send any emails? Not sure why this is as the code is exactly the same (except the table name).


Just letting you know of a new Event that has been created. Title: $title Town: $town Date: $date_convert. For more details or to attend this Event

Email Users With Specific MySQL Values?

Jun 4, 2010

I have tried searching here and Google and just can not find what I need. Basically, I have a database that includes names, emails, and the amount they owe. I would like to be able to send out a mass email to everyone in that database, and have it basically say:

"Hello <name>, you currently owe <amountdue>."

I can't figure out how to do this.

Unique Code Based On Users Unique Email Address Inserted Into Mysql Table?

Mar 15, 2011

I have a mysql table which will store users email addresses once submitted (each is unique and is the primary field) and a timestamp. I have added another column called `'unique_code' (varchar(64), utf8_unicode_ci)`.

a) Generating a 5 digit alphanumeric code, ie: 5ABH6

b) Check all rows in the 'unique_code' column to ensure it is unique, otherwise re-generate and check again

c) Insert the uniquely generated 5 digit alphanumeric code into `'unique_code'` column, corresponding to the email address just entered.

d) display the code on screen.

The table should look like:

email unique_code timestamp 5ABH6 2011-03-15 14:51:18 9QRE0 2011-03-15 14:51:24

What code must I put and where?

My current php is as follows:**

PHP Code:

require "includes/connect.php";
$msg = '';

Create A Script That Users Can Specify An Email And Send A User A Pre-defined Email?

Feb 21, 2011

basically, I'm creating a page where a user can visit, and enter in the following information:

1. Their First Name
2. Their Email
3. Recipient's Email

They then can send a pre-defined email, saying something like the following...

"Hello, {Recipient's email}. {First name} ({Email}) has just sent you a slurp! You can ignore this message, or slurp them back.
[Slurp Them Back] [Slurp Someone Else] [What's A Slurp?]"

The whole part about the Slurp is something that doesn't really matter, it's just the text from the pre-defined email. The text in {...} is taken from the fields on the page, and the text in [...] are just links.

Authentication Of Email Users

Nov 17, 2006

I want to make a user control panel for all the email users of a domain and for that purpose I want to authenticate the user email address and password with the mail server.

My MTA (Mail Transfer Agent) is Exim and POP/IMAP is handled by Courier-IMAP. I found one solution of using PHP imap_open which authenticate a mailbox using username and password. would this function be the best choice for authentication or there are any other libraries or functions that I can implement for better authentication methods.

Skipping Email Validation For Users Buying Something?

Jun 29, 2006

i'm working on a site that requires users who register to validate their email address by clicking a link in an email that we send to them. two good reasons for doing so:

1) prevent unlimited account creation by hackers and bad guys
2) make sure email addresses are real.

if a user is going to buy something, WE DON'T CARE.

now here's the trick...anybody can put items in a shopping cart and check out. when they're checking out, they eventually get to a page where they must either login to an existing account or register. login is no problem. Code:

Provide Free Email Service For Users?

Apr 10, 2010

I'll let users register their usernames@[URL], they enter their members area where they can :

1- send emails ( easy to do)
2- receive emails ..

for receiving emails , I'll use a catch all email account , read the email and figure to whom it's sent (username), and then I save it on the database with userid of the username who has registerd! Do I miss something here is it really this simple (if I don't have an email server) ?

EDIT : What I mean is : I'm going to make a portable script , when users register and make their accounts . Want to send their emails, I will use PHP to send emails .. that is easy ..

About the receiving part : I will use a catch all email account and forward the message (save it on the DB under his userID) to the owner .. so , for example: if I own [URL],, If I got [URL] message, i save it for someuser who registered this email previously to read it later

Sending Offers To Users Via Email Using A Cron?

Nov 18, 2010

for our website we need to send clients news about our activity (not spam, they can unsubscribe, and it's not related to the question). We have to send the emails at around 4 AM every day, so naturally i thought about creating a cron-job that calls an url that sends the emails. Then i did some research and saw that sending emails to all our users at the same time might not be the best option either due to the hogging of server resources, or the possibility we're gonna be marked as a spam website, so i thought about doing something like this :

create a cron job that calls a php script (script1.php)the script creates a cron that is executed every 10 minutes and calls another script(script2.php)script2.php checks if there are any users that havent' been mailed, if there are, it does a query on the database and retrieves x entries that haven't been mailed yet sends the mails to those users updates the database flag so that they won't be emailed again if there aren't any, then it sets the "mail sent" flags to their default value, and deletes the new cron (the one running every 10 minutes) or overwrites it with the default one (every day at 4 AM)

for code, script2 would look something like this :

$unsentEmails = $users->getUnsentEmails($limit);
if ($unsentEmails != 0 ){

sorry for the lack of code, but i'm trying to figure out if what i want to do is the best solution in this scenario. Also, due to the nature of the information sent i'm trying to avoid using an external service if it's possible.

think i found a better solution to this, since i was already using php on cli, i made a cron that calls the script and inside the script i send several emails, then use the sleep($seconds) command to wait for the next batch. works on the test server.

Send A Daily Email Notification To Users?

May 17, 2011

I have a simple user signup form with a checkbox that lets users get a daily email notification if there was activity on any of their projects...much like Stack Overflow has a "Notify daily of any new answers".

My current thinking to implement this in a LAMP environment is as follows:

In the user database, set a boolean value if the user wishes to receive a daily email.If there is any project activity, the project gets updated with the current timestamp.Each night (midnight), a PHP file is executed (likely through a cron job) that scans through the project database to identify which projects had activity that day. For projects with activity, the project owner name is selected and the user table is scanned to check if the user wishes to receive a daily email notification. If yes, add to a recipient list; else, ignore.

I'm in a shared hosting environment. What precautions do I need to take from being misidentified as spam either by the hosting company or the receiving mail servers?Do I need to "chunk" out the recipient list (50 emails at a time) and email each group? Is this as simple as putting a sleep(30); between each call to mail()?I'm using the CodeIgniter framework and will have the cron job call the appropriate function in a controller to run this at midnight. How do I limit calls from only the cron job to prevent some unauthorized user from calling this function from the browser?

Best Methods To Handle Email Notifications To Users?

Jun 23, 2011

So I was wondering what others use to handle sending emails from PHP to their users. My concerns are mainly performance and avoiding my emails going to the user's spam folder.Right now I am sending notifications to my users by connecting to gmail/smtp. I notice, however, that sometimes my emails end up in my spam folder when I receive the emails myself. My other issue is that sometimes a whole bunch of notifications are sent out at once, it can be very slow. Especially since the notification each user gets is customized to them, so I can't just bcc a bunch of people on one email.

I would prefer not to use a third party/web service if possible, but would definitely consider it if the benefits are worth it.

Allowing Users To Register Without Verifying Email?

Feb 1, 2010

I am unsure if this is the right place to ask this question, but since I am using PHP I might as well ask it here.

I have a website which requires users to register using an email address and then to verify that address by clicking on a link which has been emailed to them before they can login. If they try to register with someone else’s email address then obviously they cant login but it would be possible for the actual address owner to register again with the same address and the details (name, DOB, etc) in the database would be updated.

The problem is that most of the registered users never validate their email, I guess because of impatience and I want to increase the number of users.

I thought that one of doing it may be by allowing people to use the site even if their address has not been validated. This would only be done for a little while until I get a sufficient amount of users and then I would enforce email verification again. However the problem with this is that they may register with an address that belongs to another person and when the authentic email address owner tries to register, they would find that “their” account has been used previously.

Send Email Notifications To Registered Users?

Jan 27, 2010

I'm preparing a website that will send email notifications to registered users. From my experience I know, that sending emails is somewhat a painful process for PHP, especially when we're talking about thousands. One of my websites sends email every now and then to 1000-1500 people. It takes around 5mins for PHP to accomplish that, so we run it overnight when the server load is the lowest. I'm using native mail() function without any SMTP. This runs fine on a dedicated server, but I'm not a big fan of this solution.I want to be able to send similar amounts at any time without risking the server going down (and it to be lacklisted).I've read, that ideal solution is to send emails in batches (say of 20) every couple of minutes from a script that's triggered by Cron. This seems to me like a really reasonable idea, but... What if I don't have access to Cron (not all hosting providers give access to it) and website isn't popular enough to be able to trigger the script on page load?I'm insisting on using my server to do the mailing and not any external solution

Get A Subset Of The Users And Send Them An Email Once A Month

Apr 28, 2010

I want to run a logic and get a subset of the users, and send them an email once a month. Something similar to reminder mail. As I see, this task is divided in three sub modules-

1. A PHP script with a logic which will get me that subset of users
2. A sendmail($email_id) kind of function which will do the work of sending mail to given address
3. A way to schedule the execution of PHP script (of module#1) and sendmail function, so that email would be sent once in a month automatically

I have module#1 ready but I am stuck with module #2 and #3. I am new to doing mail stuff using PHP, I want to know

- what all things/settings I should be knowing to do send mail coding in PHP
- I want to send all those reminder emails to users with admin@[URL] as sender , how to achieve that?

When I search on how to go about implementing module#3, I found that CRON is preferred way to implement scheduling. But I enquired to my hosting provider and got to know that It is not accessible to me.

MAIL() Function To Send An Email When Users Register

Nov 26, 2007

I have created a registration page for my site, and once the information provided is validated OK, the script inserts all the data on to MYSQL and after that it sends a Welcome Email to the user.

My problem is that the user has to wait sometimes few minutes, with the form on front of then while  the script is sending the mail.

My questions are:

1) Is there a way to "pipe/delegate" the email job to another script while freeing the form web page, as in the Process Flow:

Form Completed ------(3 seconds)----> New page "welcome to the Club" --( fork another script)---(1 to 4 minutes)----> Send Welcome email to the user

2) While the email is being sent, the form page refreshed to a "Waiting Bar.GIF" and when the email is sent it refreshed to a new page like: "welcome Html Page"?

All i do know, is the email column is set to unique, and when i attempt to submit using an email i know exists the code appears to run successfully without spitting out any errors (i.e. the web url changes to the below php code) but the table doesn't update (which is correct).  I just don't know how to then return the user to the form (preferably with all their info still entered) when this happens along with a nice error message...
