Need Phplist Help

Recommended Posts

I hope this is the right place to post this.

 

I've been using PHPList for quite a while, but I don't use it too often. A couple of months ago, I sent an email to a 600+ member list, and TCH objected due to too many emails being sent too quickly.

 

Somebody at TCH was kind enough to change my PHPList settings to put it into "batch mode." That's nice but today I just sent something to that 600+ list, and the "batch mode" restricted them to being sent at a rate of one email every X seconds. That seems awfully slow, and it took several hours to send my emails.

 

Is there a way to set the sending speed to something higher that won't choke or raise flags at TCH?

Might be time t look in to another mailing list script such as DADA mail which have this feature and is being used by other TCH customers.

Thanks, guys! I was hoping there was a somewhat faster way, but given the price and service at TCH, I'm not complaining.

 

I looked into DADA mail, but chose PHPList for reasons I don't really remember. Changing horses at this point looks like it might be far too complicated. Is there some sort of E-Z conversion method?

You shouldn't need to switch to DADA. Here's a link explaining how to adjust PHPList's send rate: http://docs.phplist.com/PhpListConfigSendRate

 

Edit: I just reread the original post and you say that someone at TCH has already set up the batch processing. If it was just set too conservative, then adjusting PHPList's setting will work. If it's already sending the max allowed, then that's as fast as they can be sent regardless of which script you use.
