    Hi.
    I first set “Monthly Email Quota Restrictions” to 5 on the setting page. This was perfectly applied. However, I changed 5 to 10 to save the settings. But it didn’t work. I changed it to 5 again and tested it after saving, but it didn’t work either. The value of the role was changed and tested, but it did not apply either. Several tests have been performed and were applied at the initial setup of each role, but not when the value was changed and saved again. Do you know why?

    Hi there,

    Thanks for testing this, I’ve just added the feature so it’s probable I’ve missed something with the code, though I did test it. I’ll recreate what you did and get back to you.

    Thanks again for looking at this, user feedback is incredibly imprtant for plugin developers.

    Hi there, I just set the limit to 5 for the contributor role and they got to five messages then where unable to send. I then changed the setting to 10 and they were able to send again up to ten, then they could not send any more messages. I wonder what the issue could be? Did you use any of the role based restrictions or were these set to free email anyone?

    Hi, thanks for the quick reply.
    I’ve spent some time looking at your answer and checking again if I’ve missed.
    I’ve figured out some features.

    1. I knew that the limit(5,10,25…) value was the total message count limit I sent.
    2. So when the first 5 setting was changed to 10 and then changed back to 5, the message was sent already over 5 so the message could be sent continuously. So I said that this limit setting does not apply.

    Later, I did an experiment.

    The initial setting was set at 5, and the message was sent to that limit. Then I deleted all the messages. I have deleted my list, and I have deleted the list of recipients. So I made the list of messages zero. And I wrote down the message again (Keep the limit at 5), but I didn’t write the message. I think the reason is because although there is no visible message list, the limit has already been reached.

    If the above setting is correct, it is now my question.

    1.Even if I delete the list, the limit is still not cleared, so I can’t write a message anymore, so when is it reset?(Is it a month?)
    2. If the reset period is a month, can you control it? (e.g., 3 days, 7 days, 15 days, etc.) So how does that work?
    3. Can I change the limit setting to the number I want (for example, two, four, etc.) If so, how can I do that?

    Thank you for your reply.

    Ah yes, I’ve a separate counter which keeps tally of the emails sent, it only resets when you roll over to a new month.

    Currently the monthly limit is the one thats set, there’s no other options, I could look at making it weekly or daily but I’m concerned about the level of complexity that would create in the plugin. Id prefer just to have one setting, either daily, weekly or monthly but I’ll think about what alternatives there are. Do you need it to be any of these in particular?

    Yep again the number of messages you can select is preset. I could have made this a freeform entry but again this would have added to the complexity.

    Do you know exactly what you are looking for?

    I want to be 7 days, 10 days, 15 days from the day I set the limit. Is it possible?

    Not with my plugin I’m afraid, something like that would add a lot more complexity. I think you’d need a custom solution specific to your needs.

    Maybe what you are actually looking for is just to set a daily limit? that would be a lot easier to achieve.

    If I could set a reset period every day and every week, that would also be of great help to me. Of course, it would be better to know how to do it.

    If the limit was daily, it would reset every day.

    There’s always the option of forking my plugin and making your own version, all of the components for what you need are there, they just need customising into something specific for you.

    I was searching and at least a lot of people could find the same trace of worry as I did. However, plugins of these functions could not be found.
    This plugin is useful to me.
    Thanks very much for your help.

    I’ve decided to add the feature that you can apply the messaging limits on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. Should be working on that shortly. I think that would help your use case.

    Wow!!! that’s amazing.
    I really appreciate your decision.
    I will wait. Thank you very much.

    OK there’s a new version out, I’ve not had time to do a lot of testing but I think it’s all fine. Each of the counts, monthly, daily and weekly is separate, so if you switch from daily to weekly the count will start from 0 again.

    Hi!
    I changed the time period setting now and applied the result and the Daily and Monthly work well. But Weekly doesn’t work.
    The following is a message from the application of Weekly, which does not count down and continues to send messages. (minus 1 shown)
    “Your messaging is covered, you can send a further-1messages thisweek.”
    Do you know what’s wrong?

    There’s an update on the way. Simple typo that I thought I’d checked.
