Windows Server - How can I speed up the SMTP mail Queue?
Posted on 2009-07-10
I have a Windows Server with Godaddy and my limit of emails that I can send out with the server has been risen to 20,000.
Now the problem I'm having is, I sent out a newsletter to all the members of my site, which is around 14,000 members, but the emails are taking forever to be sent. I ran the script yesterday and it seems to be only sending out less than 50 emails per an hour on average
I went into the outgoing SMTP Queue and there's a few thousand emails just waiting to be sent out.
How can I speed up this process so that the emails get sent out quicker?
