Slowing down the send rate
  • We use SES for sending system emails from our software application and I don't want to swamp that traffic with marketing email. Our current send rate is 14/sec. Can this sending rate be slowed? According to this answer: http://forum.sendy.co/discussion/1272/how-to-send-only-500-mails-per-hour/p1

    It sounds like (in sendy v1.1.7.1) that doing the following would slow the sending rate to 8 per second: * Add (time_nanosleep(0, 125000000)); after line 472 in /includes/create/send-now.php * Add (time_nanosleep(0, 125000000)); after line 515 in scheduled.php

    Does that sound right?

    Could be a useful setting to include in a future version if so.

    Hi @stevegoldenberg,

    Yes that's correct, you can use time_nanosleep instead of sleep if you want precise timing.

    Thanks.

    Best regards,
    Ben
