I don't think it's called a process. This is just called spam. When you send the emails, can't you add a time to each email so that it won't be considered spam? Like every 15 minutes or so, or every chunk of registered members, just send to those members. In the SQL database, add a different field to chunks of members and have the email set up for those members, and do the same for other members. That's really the only way I can think of to stop the email providers from thinking it's spam. You could contact Google and Yahoo to see what they will consider spam.
