Hi, I am trying to send my users a mail.

I have everything ok and when hit send I get:

Sending 200 / 5000 and it get stalled there, trying to load again but showing same numbers. So its not going forward, just 200 all the time.

How can I fix this ?

Thanks.

Maybe not the correct answer - but does your host put limits on the about of emails you can send using their relays?

Personally, I never trust sending out large email lists using the basics built into CMS or forum packages - I export the email addresses and load them into mailchimp, etc.

I sent a mail out to 4,500 users the other day, and they all went through OK. EXIM queued them, and they went out over the space of 3 hours.

Are you using SendMail or SMTP? If the latter, your email service might have caps. If you are doing it all on the server, check your admin settings.

Options --> E-Mail Options

Default will be using sendmail, or SMTP will be configured separately.

If you're using your Gmail account to send those messages, there are going to be hourly and daily caps. You have to check on Google's site for current restrictions. They may be different for business class Google Apps accounts, which is what i use. You have to check your server if you're using SendMail.

But is it active for your forum mail? If you're not certain what to do, ask your host about the proper settings. It may be easier than to go into Plesk, which is not my personal cup of tea or realm of expertise.

Do any e-mails get sent from the forum? I'd have thought that if it's set to default, then it will be using sendmail via php on the server to send the mails. I have mine set up to send via SMTP, which if you were using google to send the mails, this would need to be set via the ACP?

I did, will wait to see what can be done here.

Thanks.

It seems that the first 200 users, then the loop started.

What should I change ?

I did some googling and it looks like google apps/gmail caps at 500 per day. You might want to see if your hosting provider/isp have a SMTP you can use to send the e-mail. A lot of times they do.

You can also consider something like: http://www.smtp.com/pricing-plans?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=Search+-+US+-+English+-+SMTP&utm_content=SMTP+-+Relay&utm_term=+smtp+relay&gclid=CPul1-jr6a4CFQvGKgodiHOXIA

It would let you set up a DNS name and have all your mail come from a server with that.
