I am working on a bulk email class for a project and am using Amazon's SES smtp via phpmailer. I am trying to figure out a way to test sending multiple emails without getting blacklisted, spam blocked or blocked by the host. I would ideally like to test anywhere from 10,000 to 40,000 separate sendings. Ideally I would send test submissions to dummy addresses.
But what I would like is a reliable trusted service for testing bulk mailings without using my own personal email addresses.
Does anyone have any experience with this? If so, could you please point me in the right direction. Or let me know if this questions is better posted elsewhere. Thanks in advance.
