Overall the DB method is a better design if you are anticipating any
Some additional benefits off the top of my head:
- If not using the db and the mailer daemon malfunctions on your web
server, the http response could slow down while waiting for the mail()
function to time out.
- you could offload the mail functions to a separate or multiple machines
- easier to query/generate reports to recognize the spam bot/requests.
