Can I stagger mass emails ? Having mail issues

    I run a car club and I need to be able to mass email my members.

    My ip sometimes gets blocked with mass emails and also certain providers don't allow our emails for notifications from the site . I don't send out too many email blasts maybe 4 a month and we only 1300 users.
    Is there a way to send out 1 at a time ?
    Is there any way to ensure my members get forum emails

    I've looked into different options , don't really understand why I'm on the list all our emails go to registered members. Unless its a spammer that cause the flags on us. We did have some hacker issues when we still had vb

    Is a mailchimp type of service worth it ? Is there a service like that that could be integrated into our forum ?

    Any help is greatly appreciated

    What mail send method are you using now? To a local SMTP server on your server that you can control? If so, most(all?) SMTP servers have send rate limiting functionality.

    Yes, if you use your own SMTP server, then you can configure rate limiting on mail sending
