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.February 15, 2016 at 10:48 pm #20881StefanoKeymaster
Being a WP plugin is not mutithread (even if we are working on that) so you for sure won’t be able to use all the power of your system.

Hi Stefano, I completely understand that. Just did not know if your support staff has any documentation of what type of queuing speeds we can expect on a typical dedicated server.February 15, 2016 at 11:15 pm #20885StefanoKeymaster
We have no stats about that, you should try in your server in dry run, just enqueuing the email in your system without sending them,.February 16, 2016 at 1:28 am #20888
How do I put this in demo/dry run environment so I can do a sample send to 175k recipients without actually sending it? Please let me know. I will provide you the speed results for your records.February 25, 2016 at 6:18 pm #21094MohibParticipantFebruary 25, 2016 at 6:45 pm #21096MohibParticipant
BTW for testing I use https://www.fastmail.com/
They have some very interesting features. For, example if you register as email@example.com, then you can send mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and it will arrive in your fastmail in-box.
So this way you can use Excel to generate several thousand fake email addresses (email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, 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.
