i'm using a php app for my niche social networking site, the default mass mailer is only sending 20 mails at a time, and i have over 13,000 members...

can someone give me an idea of where to look in the files on the server for the stuff that make the mass mailing run?

What kind of "php app" are you using? There may be a setting in the app itself that you can change or you might have to go into the code and change the number there.

Look on the server for what? Doesn't the application control allow you to configure the bulk email settings?

Give the following a try. In the same application (root) you will find freemail.php

At around line 170:

if ($anon_mode)
{
return 20;
}

Trying changing the number to the number you wish, and see if that makes a difference.

Nevertheless do not go over 50 many ISP will start to be doubtful about your intentions if you go over that number.
I do not know your application
But also check if there is "timer" something like a pause in between batch
Try to make it a bit smaller.
Anyway 13000/50=260 even with 5 sec pause it might take anything in between 35 min to 1 hour. You might consider placing a call to your ISP and verify that they are OK with it.
