This post is more like a general wondering, than a question.
When I send out 10k emails in a newsletter (ups sorry, broadcast email), I have the following options:
- Browser builds the queue
I make my newsletter than click on publish.
Than I click on send.
The queue starts to build up in spool, and I have to wait with my browser open to get it done.
Not user friendly. Especially with 100k emails.
- Cron builds the queue
Make the newsletter, publish.
Fill out publish for a future time. (Not user friendly, it should be called schedule sending)
I have to fill out the time when it should be not sent out anymore to newly added contacts to the segment. (People really don’t know about this)
So I fill out un-publish 4 days from now, when the newsletter’s content is not so new anymore.
Bonus: The broadcast cron has to be set up as well, so one more cron to run.
So this is even less user friendly, but at least I can close my laptop, don’t need to keep my browser running.
- Send immediately
This happens if you choose no queue. I def. want to use a queue for resource management, deliverability reasons, so this is out of question.
Here is the question:
How do you send 10k+ emails out?
Is there a way to set option nr.2. with sending out the emails 5 min in the future?
