TOPIC: send x mails every x minutes

send x mails every x minutes 11 months 6 days ago #110260

Hi!
I've made a survey with over 5000 participants.
Every participant gets his own invitation-mail.
Unfortunately the SMPT-Server I have to use, just allows 50 mails every minute.
So I have to click on 'next' about 100 times.

I would love to have the possibility that limesurvey does this automatically,
so one could set "send x mails every x minutes".
That would be aweseome.

However thanks a lot for Limesurvey and the great support. I love it :).

Josi

They allow 12k of email per month for free. So I think is is sufficient for you to use.

Hi,

I already think of "send mail by ajax" system, with send a mail each 'X' seconds global settings. If you are interested, you can contact me at www.sondages.pro/a-propos/contact-en.html .

Maybe we should think about using tools like www.phplist.com/details for sending emails.

It seems to send emails in certain intervalls and what sounds very interesting as well (to avoid getting marked as spam) sends only a certain number of emails to one domain (e.g. Gmail or Yahoo only receive few emails per minute / hour).

It would be great if we could have more influence on how invitations are sent (e.g. 1 package every hour, every 30min, 15min, 5min, 1min), etc.
Have a look at the manual! It is a really valuable source for information. Here some helpful links:

The script offers here should be able to automate that process because you can define the interval of the cron job yourself and tell the script about the max batch limit:
