Sending emails from database & where to get training for Filemaker




I'm using filemaker to send emails to our Conservation Trust Members that have supplied email addesses. The newsletter I'm attaching is a 1.8mb PDF file.  I set it up, but it takes a long time for the emails to go.  I tried a couple and it took 4 minutes each for the emails to go. This means it would take hours to send emails to all our members.  Is there an easier way or do I just need a faster internet connection?  


Also, I'm self trained using Filemaker.  I'm using Filemaker Pro Advanced and would like to know, at some point, how to make stand alone programs.  I've taken a beginners training course from a company in Framingham, MA, but they didn't teach me anything that I didn't already know.  Does anyone have a suggestion as to where I can get training.  


Thanks, Patty
