    Hi – I have the Amazon SES extension enabled and configured and I love it! Thank you!

    One question: It appears that the SES extension is limiting the delivery speed to the value shown elsewhere in the plugin dashboard for sending speed (which defaults to 100). I just increased it to 1,000. I am using this with a client who has 5500 subscribers. Will 1000 work? Should I just set it to a wildly higher number, like 10,000, since after all Amazon can probably handle that just fine?

    Thanks!

    Thank you! I did finally find the info I needed on the SES control panel: 14 per second (!) That’s more than 50,000 per hour. So, I set it to 25,000, which is more than adequate for my needs.

    Are you actually getting that kind of throughput?

    My Amazon limit is 75k per hour, but per my tests above, I can only get the current, single threaded, version of Newsletter Plugin to push out 6k per hour.

    You asked, “Are you actually getting that kind of throughput? My Amazon limit is 75k per hour, but per my tests above, I can only get the current, single threaded, version of Newsletter Plugin to push out 6k per hour.”

    Currently, the largest client email list that I have is 5,500 or so names, so SES can do that easily for me in less than an hour, with the sending speed set to 25,000.

    My needs are more modest than many, I speculate.

    You can set to 10000, but you can have limits on the capability of PHP (execution timeout) so it can not reach the 10000 per hour you set (anyway it’s safe since Newsletter handle that case).

    In the near future we hope to able to release a multithread engine able to send at greater speed.
    Stefano.
