Php Mail

I would like to set up a client with php newsletter software. I have run into countless problems doing this on other server environments. I have tried to make my questions exact.

Should I be using the php sendmail mail transfer agent or is it preferred that I speak directly to your stmp server over sockets?

I realize there is load balancing on your server ( Thank God ) are there any other restraints in place that will terminate my mailing scripts prematurely outside of the usual max_execution time settings?

In other words... should I be scheduling controlled bursts with cron or can I get away with letting loose and just send everything out all at once?

My clients current mailing lists do not exceed 6,000 - 8,000 emails addresses. Most clients are under 500 emails total.

Will I be billed additionally for mail traffic?

Any help would be much appreciated.

We support mailing lists under VPS plans as it takes a lot of load when running them in a shared environment.

You should send them in batches rather then send them all at once.
