    PHP Script Limit Emails Being Sent??

    Hi Everyone,

    I am new to this site and hope I am posting in the right area. I have a website and I need help with some coding. I need to limit the amount of newsletters that are sent out to my registered users.

    Can someone tell me how to add a line or so in this script to maybe choose sending to members 1 - 200 and then I could change to at any time to send it to different member numbers?

    I really appreciate any information that is given. Thank you so much for your time. Also, I am much better with HTML so this coding is greek to me.

    Here is the newsletter script:

    PHP Code:
    <?
    require_once("../conn.php");
    require_once(
    "access.php");
    require_once(
    "AdminNavigation.php");

    if(isset(
    $_POST[s1]))
    {
    $q1 "select * from class_members";
    $r1 mysql_query($q1) or die(mysql_error());

    while(
    $a1 mysql_fetch_array($r1))
    {
    $to $a1[email];
    $subject $_POST[sub];
    $message $_POST[MyMessage];

    $headers "MIME-Version: 1.0\n";
    $headers .= "Content-type: text/plain; charset=iso-8859-1\n";
    $headers .= "Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit\n";
    $headers .= "From: $_SERVER[HTTP_HOST] <$aset[ContactEmail]>\n";
    $headers .= "X-Priority: 1\n";
    $headers .= "X-MSMail-Priority: High\n";
    $headers .= "X-Mailer: PHP/" phpversion()."\n";

    mail($to$subject$message$headers);

    $i++;
    }

    $error "$i messages was sent";
    }

    //get the number of registered members
    $q1 "select count(*) from class_members";
    $r1 mysql_query($q1) or die(mysql_error());
    $a1 mysql_fetch_array($r1);

    if(
    $a1[0] == 0)
    {
    echo 
    "<br><br><center>There are no registered members, yet!</center>";
    exit();
    }

    ?>

    <script>
    function CheckMail() {

    if(document.f1.sub.value=="")
    {
    alert('Enter the newsletter subject line, please!');
    document.f1.sub.focus();
    return false;
    }

    if(document.f1.MyMessage.value=="")
    {
    alert('Enter the newsletter text, please!');
    document.f1.MyMessage.focus();
    return false;
    }

    }
    </script>

    <br><br>
    <form method=post onsubmit="return CheckMail();" name=f1>
    <table align=center width=500>

    <tr>
    <td></td>
    <td><b>Newsletter</b><br><?=$error?></td>
    </tr>

    <tr>
    <td align=right>Subject:</td>
    <td><input type=text name=sub size=36></td>
    </tr>

    <tr>
    <td align=right valign=top>Message:</td>
    <td><textarea name=MyMessage rows=10 cols=35></textarea></td>
    </tr>

    <tr>
    <td>&nbsp</td>
    <td><input type=submit name=s1 value="Send" class="sub1"></td>
    </tr>

    </table>

    </form>

    <?
    require_once("admin_footer.php");
    ?>

    In your while() loop, your only condition is so long as there is a new line in the SQL query results. Add an integer variable inside the loop which starts at 0 and increments by 1 (ie. $i++;). Then inside the conditional clause of the while() you can add an "or $i == x" (ie. || $i == 200;).
    If the post was helpful...Rate it! Remember to use [code] or [php] tags.
