How much time will magento take to send 5000 emails ? with the default newsletter functionality. I will be using a private server so i don't think there will be issues regarding the server performances.

    As far as I know it send 20 Mails every 5 minutes so 5000/20*5/60 = 20 hours – Stefan Gregori Jun 27 '14 at 9:26
  • Glad to help you out :) btw for mass newsletter like this I can recommend campaignmonitor. they got a really nice system with drag&drop responsive email templates and for 5000 mail it should still be cheep! – Stefan Gregori Jul 1 '14 at 7:07

There still might be a bottleneck with your email service provider if sending the newsletters via SMTP etc so I would always suggest hooking up to a service that is specifically built for mass mailing and can highly recommend Mailchimp and this Magento extension: ebizmarts - MageMonkey

    +1. Server side, 50k emails could be delivered within minutes. But the real issue is ensuring they get delivered. The moment any large email service provider sees a flood from a single mail server, you'll immediately be grey listed/throttled/blacklisted. Using a commercial service is definitely recommend to ensure deliverability. – Ben Lessani - Sonassi Oct 8 '14 at 21:36
