Send Mass Emails Using the Mailqueue System

Send Mass Emails Using the Mailqueue System 1.0


I recently changed where I send emails for my forum from. I had been using by server and now switched to an outside place. I found that sending a mass email would take FOREVER since it would take a few seconds per email it had to send out.

I had my vb setting of "Use Mailqueue System" set to 'Yes' but I realized it was NOT using the queue.

I found the way to enable the queue and sending mass emails takes me just a few seconds now! (This hack makes sending emails from your own server much faster also.)

This hack enables the vb queue only if you have 'Use Mailqueue System' turned on. Sending mass emails will take you a few seconds instead of minutes of hours!

Installation:

Open file 'admincp/email.php'.

Search for:

CHANGE it to:

Please post your comments or suggestions for this hack. I read ALL posts.

MAKE SURE YOU CLICK INSTALL!
You will get an email when a new version is released.

Didn't see that one but there are may diffs I think. I took a quick look only. That seems to use a cron system rather then the regular queue. If you have a lot of members on your site at once, then my hack would send emails much faster. Also, if you have very few people on your site, his may slow up.

He will only send 10 a min. and you need users to trigger the min. By me, you need the users to trigger but it goes for every trigger, not just once a min.

Hi Abe,

So, let me ask, one cannot send HTML formatted emails through this? I have a custom mod that allows me to send HTML emails through the vB system. LMK if this would work.

I have no idea if it would work with it or not.

Make sure you did the edit 100% correct. You may have added or deleted something extra.

Abe1, I've just installed it, thank you. I'll be testing it soon. Should I have to modify any of my settings in my admincp ?

Just make sure you use the setting on how to sends emails is set to use the queue.
