A Finding On Gmail Sending Speed

It is interesting to find out in the following link[1]that gmail can process 1000 emails per 55 minutes. I was considering 1 per second or 60 per 1 minute or 3600 per hour (or faster of course lol) but the test was using php and it gave a gap of 3-4 per email.

Their code is this:
Code: [Select]
        $mail = new PHPMailer();
        $mail->Host = "";
        $mail->SMTPAuth = true;
        $mail->Username = 'USERNAME';
        $mail->Password = 'PASSWORD';
        $mail->From = "";
        $mail->FromName = "Gmail Test";
        for($i=0; $i<=1000; $i++){
       $date = date("H:i:s m/d/Y");
       $mail->Subject = "$date";
       $mail->Body = "Test $i of PHPMailer.";
          echo "Error sending: " . $mail->ErrorInfo;
          echo "$i. E-mail sent => $date<BR>";

I am interested in learning this from EA code for sending emails but where do I find them?

I don't really understand what you were saying @vbgamer45.

I was referring to using gmail smtp in sending emails, not using own email server for it. So, I don't find IP issue of much relevant.

Ah yes never mind my fault did not read it clearly.

I would get a throw email account just in case gmail account if you are going to use so in case they don't like the emails you don't loose your main gmail acount.
