    Has anyone seen this error before. I get it when I try and send out emails or clean up my users waiting for approval. Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in C:\xampp\htdocs\library\Zend\Mail\Protocol\Abstract.php on line 364

    Thank you

    You should reduce the batch size when sending emails.

    It happens if you're doing a large group, you can adjust the timeout settings in your PHP settings.

    The default, usually 30 seconds, can be extended to a more reasonable amount to allow the system to finish processing.

    You can try extending it in increments of 30 seconds to see if it will be enough.

    Your other option is to do less at one time.

    Refer to this PHP doc for more information about the settings.
