My PHP application for a client uses the publicly available "PHPMailer - PHP  
email class" which is very good. However, my client recently complained  
about the following error when sending out over 4000 emails. (Note that each  
email is customised so needs to be sent individually - not using Bcc).

The application reported to have sent the 4000 emails successfully (it sends  
each one as part of a loop and then when completed gives a count for the  
amount sent, so it got past this stage. but then it gave the following error  

"Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in  
/home/account23/public_html/app/PEAR.php on line 521"

Can anyone help me with what this means. I have tried to look this up but  
have found very different information that does not seem to relate to my  

Thanks in advance.
