How is the cron job working? (1 post)

    this plugin has some nice settings - "Restrict the number of recipients per email" and
    Send Emails: For each Post, Every 5 minutes, Every 10 minutes and so on.

    We have 1000 subscribers. So if we restrict the number of recipients to 10 and set it to send emails every 5 minutes, will these 2 options work together and will all 1000 emails be send out in groups of 10?

    I read the FAQ and http://subscribe2.wordpress.com/ but haven't found any straight answer.

    I had a look into the source code and I'm not sure about that. Looks like it needs WordPress Mail Queue plugin to do this (I'm not sure if that plugin uses WP cron properly, I'm trying to contact developer at http://wpplugins.com/ but the forum over there doesn't work).

    So what's the point of having the cron settings if it won't send emails in groups of 10? How does it work?
