Support » Plugin: AsynCRONous bbPress Subscriptions » Issue trying to send notifications in batches

  • Resolved strike3


    We have about 300 subscribers on our main site forum. At this point, none of them are receiving new topic notifications since we are going over the email limits of the web hosting. I’ve added your plugin since the individual email limit is much higher than the BCC limit, but we still had to add another step with this many subscribers.

    We added a plugin (SMTP Mailing Queue) that takes WordPress emails and sends them out in batches of 50 every 5 minutes. However, for some reason it’s not seeing any of the notification emails from BBPress. It does seem to pick up on all the normal WP mail, and on mail from the other plugins we use (e.g., BBPress Moderation). Any idea why this might be happening? Is BBPress using some non-standard method to send the emails?

    As a side question, does your plugin work with external SMTP services in case we have to go that route?

    Thanks for any help with this issue. I would be happy to make a donation if we can get batch notifications working!

    Hi Matt,

    both bbPress and AsynCRONous bbPress Subscriptions use wp_mail() to send notification mails, which is the normal way of doing this. I’m not sure why this queuing plugin doesn’t seem to pick them up, you might want to ask the author or try some of the other queuing plugins.

    As for using external SMTP services, yes, that works. I have successfully tested AsynCRONous bbPress Subscriptions with the WP-Mail-SMTP plugin.

    Thanks for the advice! I’ll check into other options for queuing.
