I was wondering if anyone could give me an idea of what type of queuing speeds we could expect from this software? We currently use our own PowerMTA installation which can send over 1m emails per hour (delivered). We have several copies of Interspire Email Marketer with multi-threaded addons that allow us to queue over 1.5m emails per hour, plenty of room for us to expand. However we have a new project where it would not be efficient to copy the blog posts into iem to deliver the mail so we are highly considering using this software with the feed plugin.
The question is, how fast can this software queue email? Absent of connectivity because we have a very strong backbone and absent of any physical sending delays because our infrastructure can handle more than we can throw at it. In our experience working with IEM, we have found mysql to be the largest factor of sending speed so we always mount sql on an SSD for added speed.
I know your software is not multi-threaded, so we are concerned on what the queuing speed will be. We have over 175,000 subscribers and would need to queue at least 250k emails per hour. We just want to know about how fast this software can relay mail to our server for delivery. We utilize hyper-threaded quad cores, with 32 gb of ram, and sql mounted on SSD.
They have some very interesting features. For, example if you register as firstname.lastname@example.org, then you can send mail to email@example.com and it will arrive in your fastmail in-box.
So this way you can use Excel to generate several thousand fake email addresses (firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, etc.). Then use NewsLetter’s CSV import and, at the same time, tag them as a special list. Then you can test emails to that list.
