how to throttle emails

my host allows me to send 500 emails per hour maximum

how to set this up in the settings, I have no idea, I read the manual but I couldn’t find the detailed guide on how to do this

Thank you for answering yours

After you set your “How should email be handled” in Configuration - Email Settings to “Queue”, you need to ask yourself how many times that you’re going to run the “mautic:queue:process” cronjob in an one hour window. Once you figure out that number, divide that number into the amount of emails you want to send within your one hour window. The result is the number that you put in the “Message limit for queue processing” text area or you can hard-code the number with the “-m ##” option in the actual “mautic:queue:process” cronjob.
