I'm assuming you're on a shared server?

You will have to talk to your current host about what server resources you can use without them taking your board offline for abuse of resources.

This isn't a problem that can be attributed to the phpBB software.

you will need to learn how to setup your server to handle that type of load. mailing out to 110k users is a big job so you probably need to make changes at the server level of some kind.

You will probably need to move the process out of phpbb as I don't think it is really meant to be able to mail out that size of a list.
