sending multiple emails

    I have about 5000 emails in my database. I wrote a basic script that sends
    an email to all of those email addresses. Usually I have to break it up and
    only send 300-400 at a time so my script does not timeout.
    I know I can up my timeout to 45 minutes if I needed to, so that they could
    all be sent at once, but I do not believe that is a wise decision.

    Does any know of any other ways to do this more efficiently?

    Thanks.
