Mailing from PHP

I have a Google apps account, that I would like to use to email
(extracting information from a MySQL table). The Google apps account
allows me to use it as an SMTP mailer. Are there any recommendations
by those who have experience in this space (including using an
alternative to Google), for mailings (not spam, just managing an
event), from a MySQL table, and PHP?

You may want to try the MIME e-mail message class that has support for
SMTP delivery and SMTP authentication that Google requires.

There is an article here precisely about sending e-mail from PHP
applications via Gmail (Google Apps), Hotmail and Yahoo SMTP servers.

You will also need  these classes:

phpmailer - it tops any other mailer around.

I just use the email server provided with the web hosting.

For small amounts of messages, almost anything will do. But sending
large amounts of mail can be pretty tricky. A third-pary application can
be a good option:
