Today I’ve released the new version 2.4.7 of EasyMail newsletter plugin.
It’s a release to fix some little bugs and to set up new defaults for cron batch sendings.
Up to now the interval between 2 cron batch sendings has been 10 minutes and the max number of emails per batch has been 60.
From now the interval between 2 cron batch sendings is 5 minutes and the max number of emails per batch is 30.
In this way we can reduce the issue of multiple emails to same recipient experienced by someone. I can see that the problem happens when the max number of emails per batch is high (e.g. 50 or more). Any help about this issue is appreciated.
If you install a fresh 2.4.7 on a blog, nothing more to do: the new settings are automatically loaded.
If you are upgrading an old version of plugin, you can change the cron batch settings following these instructions:
- in admin panel go to Newsletters → Settings → tab Batch sending and set up the 2nd setting (“Maximum number of emails that can be sent per batch”) to 30; anyway, in that screen I added some help text about cron batch sending
- in your wp-config.php add this line:
define( "ALO_EM_INTERVAL_MIN", 5 );
then to apply this change you have to reactivate the plugin.
You can read guide, faqs… (see links in right sidebar) and use the forum to share your feedback. And you can contribute to keep the plugin update donating some money to me.
