bulk email tweaks


many providers has limits to send number of email's per hour or per day. Is there way to make some configuration to make artificial delay in sending bulk mails?

may be some configurable option for ThreadSleep in EmailMessageTask.RunTaskOnNewThread or any other more appropriate place? 

So if I know that my provider only will accept 300 emails per hour i can set 12 or 15 seconds to send each next email instead of 0.10 seconds that is used now the mail sending will take few hrs instead of few minutes, but it may be good solution for low-cost hosting and low-budget projects.

Re: bulk email tweaks

Hi Victor,

We already have such a setting, you can add this to user.config:

<add key="NewsletterMaxToSendPerMinute" value="5" />

Since there are 60 minutes in an hour that should send approximately 300 in one hour. Or you may want to set it to 4 if you have other things such as forums that may also be sending email at the same time.

I've just updated the documentation article Sending Bulk Email to mention these settings.

Hope that helps,
