The system is currently sending out 2 segment mailers and a campaign mailer (m1,m2,m3). M1 was started 2 hours after the segment mailers (m2 & m3) so it seems that the logic is neither FILO or LILO or FIFO - what is it - how does this thing work
I know removed the mautic queue and used Send Immediately. Remember my Amazon SES rate limit is set to 4,500/minute (77/seconds).
The only way I could benchmark this was old school by actually timing the minute I start and the minute the send finishes watching the screen and to send out 30,000 emails it took 39 minutes!!
Is this something that sounds correct ? I know understand why the client was surprised he received an email at 10 in the evening when it was scheduled during the day, however it was sending to a segment of 600K.
As a mistake which subsequently turned into a test, I set a campaign to automatically restart contacts and allowed contacts to restart the campaign. Within minutes I had spooled something like 4000 emails (luckily to my test account) and rate limited the email server we use. Fortunately, the mail server meets our relatively low sending volumes, but I was quite alarmed at the sheer amount of emails Mautic generated with my buggy campaign setup.
