Hi, to send an email with ar_mailer I need to generate it and save it to the db, right? Currently the code looks very simple: Newsletter.recepients.each do |recepient| NewsletterMailer.deliver_dedicated(request, recepient, newsletter) end But for i.e. 30000 receivers it's going to take a long while anyway. Should I create them somehow in the background using BackgrounDRb or something similar? If I should, then I could get rid of the ar_mailer and just send all emails in the background... The only advantage of ar_mailer in this case would be the functionality to send emails in batches. Any thoughts?

The use of backgroundrb is to divorse the long running the tasks from controllers. if you use ar_mailer you rails app will be overloaded. So its better to go with backgroundrb. Cheers, Ratnavel.
