Emails per Queue. The best WordPress Newsletter Plugin by Supsystic is sending emails by batches – this is made because of big amount of emails can just stop woking your server. The basic number which is set in our plugin automatically is 80 emails per a hour. Plugin Newsletter settings allow to change it on Settings tab, but it’s a rate which was recommended by Google developers in order not to be recognized as spammer.
An important point connected with emails number is also the frequency of their sending. Thus Emails Queue check Frequency allows you to choose it.
Supsystic recommends you to set it once an hour (as it is set basically). But remind, that if you choose this option and start your newslettering queue it will start in an hour. So do not expect an immediate result, please. If you want just to test our Newsletter plugin, because you are using it first – choose another option, like every minute, every 10 minutes etc.
Don’t forget to “Save” settings. When everything is ready, press “Start Sending”. Sending will be performed according to the settings made by you earlier.
