Just Host Web Hosting Help

phpList Suggested Settings

  1. Locate the config.php file.  If installed with defaults from Marketplace the full path will be
    /home#/username/public_html/list/config/config.php.
  2. Please make a backup at this point.
  3. Locate the Miscellaneous Section.
  4. Below this section find the following:
  5. Code:
    # define the amount of emails you want to send per period. If 0, batch processing
    # is disabled
    # Just Host suggest a default of 150 per hour.
    define("MAILQUEUE_BATCH_SIZE",0);

    # define the length of one batch processing period, in seconds (3600 is an hour)
    define("MAILQUEUE_BATCH_PERIOD",3600);
    These are the default settings.
    Here is the suggested default code.

    Code:
    # define the amount of emails you want to send per period. If 0, batch processing
    # is disabled
    # Just Host suggests a default of 150 per hour.
    define("MAILQUEUE_BATCH_SIZE",150);

    # define the length of one batch processing period, in seconds (3600 is an hour)
    define("MAILQUEUE_BATCH_PERIOD",3600);
    The above settings tell phplist to send 150 emails per hour.
    The last edit to make is under the Experimental Section.

    Code:
    # Mailqueue autothrottle. This will try to automatically change the delay
    # between messages to make sure that the MAILQUEUE_BATCH_SIZE (above) is spread evently over
    # MAILQUEUE_BATCH_PERIOD, instead of firing the Batch in the first few minutes of the period
    # and then waiting for the next period. This only works with mailqueue_throttle off
    # it still needs tweaking, so send your feedback to mantis.tincan.co.uk if you find
    # any issues with it
    define('MAILQUEUE_AUTOTHROTTLE',0);
    Change the MAILQUE_AUTOTHROTTLE to 1.

    Code:
    # Mailqueue autothrottle. This will try to automatically change the delay
    # between messages to make sure that the MAILQUEUE_BATCH_SIZE (above) is spread evently over
    # MAILQUEUE_BATCH_PERIOD, instead of firing the Batch in the first few minutes of the period
    # and then waiting for the next period. This only works with mailqueue_throttle off
    # it still needs tweaking, so send your feedback to mantis.tincan.co.uk if you find
    # any issues with it
    define('MAILQUEUE_AUTOTHROTTLE',1);
