We generate mails to our clients using a CRON job at a remote Apache server. Those of our clients with AOL addresses have these mails blocked by AOL, so they do not get through. These mails are ONLY sent to our clients, with their full permission, and it is important that they get through.
But we can send mails through an email program (like Outlook Express) by SMTP and they get through. These are constructed manually.
What I require is a program that will run at a regular interval on a local machine that automates the sending of these mails by SMTP. Data (email address and other data included) is collected from a MySQL database on a server. The ABSOLUTE requirement is that they get through AOL. The local machine can be Windows or Linux.
The following are my absolute requirements:
I require a developer who has a very good grasp of English.
Please send an outline of the programming process.
I will ask you to reply to me with your interpretation of this job in your own words.
I always place in escrow the money to cover the agreed price.
No payment will be made until the program is tested and provides delivery of mails to AOL addresses.
When the program is tested and shown to work payment will be in full and instant.
