[resolved] High volume mailing (3 posts)

    Hey there!

    This plugin is awesome! I love it!
    I'm currently using it for a website that's still in development. Basically we send html mails out with information about a custom post. The subscriber filters the mail they want to receive by filling in their preferences (quite a lot of checkboxes). Subscription is double opt in and people can unsubscribe easily with just two clicks.
    What I'm worried about, though, is whether the plugin will be able to cope with a large amount of email going through (large being, say, 200 emails in one go, but this only happens less than once a day).
    I now call wp_mail with a foreach statement. Should I spread recipients in bcc headers? Or should I delay the foreach? Or will it just work fine now?

    Thanks a lot!

    Yes, the plugin will work fine with that load. However, your Mandrill account will have a Sending Hourly Quota based on your "Account Reputation" so the actual number of emails sent within an hour will be limited to that threshold. Additional emails will be queued and sent the next hour so no email will be lost.

    You can find more about reputation and quotas here:

    Thanks a lot for your reply!

    It's no problem if the emails are spread over time, I just need to be sure Mandrill gets them all if 200 emails or more are sent it a second. I realise this might not be a large amount of emails for Mandrill, it just sounds like a lot to me! :)

    Thanks again!
