Newsletter Limitation

Postby marcus@localhorst » Mon 1. Sep 2014, 13:15

Hello all,
my newsletter subscriber list (in phpwcms) grew to around 1000 over night.
Can I expect getting 1000 mails sent out over the server in one loop, when there is a limitation of x emails per hour (all-inkl.com)?
How to get around this problem?
Thanks, Marcus

Use another provider for sending or use developer tools to increase the looping pause. Remember to increase session timeout and logout timeout too. But I have never tried myself…

Seems to work. I like that. Thanks!
Maybe it's worth to consider sending an amount X (=provider limit) from the queue and then the user can go back and send the next batch. It could be extended to optionally let a cronjob calling the queue in the background, but manually splitting up the queue would give more control and avoid problems.

It is automatically splitted, once the newsletter has been sent to a recipient it will not delivered again. So it is possible to continue newsletter sending when connection has died or something other has happened.
