    Feel free to move this thread if it does't belong here, but I thought it was the closest match.

    I want to start a service where I deliver each user a 5mb zip file a day (probably 300 users).

    How could I do that?
    Putting it on FTP and distributing the link is not an option, cause I want to watermark the files to have some means against abuse and leakage.

    Are there email programs out there that would do that on autopilot?
    Thanks!

    You could have a script made that will automate all this. Most files types are susceptible to watermarking without getting destroyed and emailing is easy. Why not make a post on the "hire a freelancer" section to get someone on it?

    Also, instead of mailing, you could have a "members area" with separate login per customer.

    I hoped there was a proven solution like email autoresponders or something like that. Watermarking would happen to the data. Data are large lists, so I could insert one special entry for each user on his zip, I would do that while processing the data anyway.
    I scrape the most interesting parts of a major site with a selfmade bot daily (with URL of offer, Image URL, and lots of data to find bargains and interesting stuff). Wanted to offer access to the data for money.
