You don't need to trigger the delivery engine if you setup a cron call as described on my site (www.satollo.net) on the delivery engine chapter.
only when i click "trigger the delivery engine" adds 5 more to "total sent"
i did what you describe about delevery engine at my host provider (A2 hosting) please see the printscreen if is every thing ok
after i did that, the only diference its that now i recive every 5 minutes this email at email@example.com whit this message:
