Bulk email speed


Recommended Posts

I will have to email my community about some news and evolutions.

I made some tests with the bulk email system. It sends around 700 emails in 2 minutes. 5 to 6 emails per second.

I think it can generate some problems. 

- It is a spammer speed degrading server reputation
- Some hosting companies have hourly limits
- As all mail arrives in a short period of time, there is an influx of connections to the site at the same time

is the a way to manage email sending speed ?
By example : 1 email each 2 seconds, or other...

You may adjust that by adding it to constants.php file:

 If your web host or email provider cannot handle sending many emails at once, you can optionally add the following line to your constants.php to set a number to process per bulk mail cycle. In this example we are setting it to 25 per task cycle.

define ( 'BULK_MAILS_PER_CYCLE', 25 );

Use 100 or higher. Make sure that your hosting provider handle that large number mails per batch!
