Question

Would the server crash if I send large attachments in mailgun using images inside the server?

I want to send about 80mb of 18 files from the server as an e-mail attachment in mailgun/node.js to about 1,000 people, I feel like this would be an overload on a $5 digital ocean server considering the number of requests and the size of the files. What do you recommend I do?

Hi there,

It is really hard to say yes or no, but what you could do is separate the task into chunks, so rather than sending 1000 emails, you could do this in 10 runs * 100.

You could also add a swap file so that you could have some extra memory buffer:

One of the easiest way of increasing the responsiveness of your server and guarding against out of memory errors in your applications is to add some swap space. In this guide, we will cover how to add a swap file to an Ubuntu 16.04 server. <$>[warning] [label...
