Hello sendmail gurus :-)

I know you are probably tired of these kind of questions, but I
haven't found a solution for my particular problem in previous

Basically I have 50,000 emails i need to send on daily basis, but the
database of members is in MySQL, and each email message is customized,
that is has some unique information that each subscriber chose. (like
username/pass, targeted banners, optout links etc...)

Please advise on sendmail config or point me to another MTA that will
let me do this...

Thank you in advance.
