How can I email 20,000 people a text email newsletter?
I tried gmail but it says I can only do 50 at a time and 500 a day. And it blocks me if I email too frequently.
I tried inviting with a yahoo group but thats also 50 at a time.
Im thinking probably a email program but which one is best and will it really send it to all those people without the server blocking it or something?
if not, which program is best?

thanks

Ok, thanks, I need to ask. But I don't think your ISP will allow it.. Perhaps I should remove all our replies so you cab start this thread clean.

You could always subscribe to a newsletter service such as: http://www.newsletterville.com/

Otherwise you will need to discuss the volume of outgoing newsletters with your service provider. I don't know of any that would allow that kind of volume without it being classed as a business.

You might also try using Mailman, or a hosted Mailman service.

I'm with hiyatran. The simplest solution would be to post an announcement on your forum.
