Your send process is slow and you're wondering why?
My host has an hourly sending limitation
The only solution to avoid your host sending limitation is to use an other sending server.
Upgrade to a dedicated server
Shared plans have limitations on the send process but if you upgrade to a dedicated server, you will be able to send as many e-mails as you want...
Please remember your host limits the send process to avoid being blacklisted so if you use your own server, don't forget to not abuse on the number of e-mails you send per hour!
Use an external delivery service
No need to change your host, simply go on the AcyMailing configuration page and select the smtp sending method to send via another server.
You can pick up an external delivery service.
Each message takes 5 seconds to be sent
Do you have a big file attached to your Newsletter?
If you do, please make sure the option "embed attachments" is set to "No" on the AcyMailing configuration page so instead of embedding the file within the message, AcyMailing will just add a link to this file in your Newsletter.
Do you have the option "embed pictures" enabled on the AcyMailing configuration page?
If so, please disable this option... your visitor will still see your pictures inside your Newsletter but instead of sending them within the e-mail, they will stay on your server.
You're using an SMTP server?
AcyMailing has to connect to this SMTP server each time you deliver a message... it should not take more than 1 second per e-mail.
You have an old version of AcyMailing 5
In the past, the SEF system or click tracking system were not optimised. Update to the latest version of AcyMailing 5.
If you can't do it, disable the option "Use SEF Urls" in the "Interfaces" tab of the Acy configuration page. You can also temporary disable the click tracking from the "Data collection" tab to see if it has any effect on the sending speed.
Each message takes 1 second to be sent... but it's still too slow for me!
If you send via an external SMTP server, the communication with this external server takes time and sending 1 email every second is the standard rate. If you send from your own server, you will send much much faster...
