survey isn't reachable until all mails sent

4 years 1 day ago #92785 by adishardis
If I send out 1000 mails at a time, limesurvey takes some time to process the request. while the mails are being sent one after another, nobody can access the survey until limesurvey is done sending all the mails and I'm thinking we loose some respondents due to this.

I'm I doing something wrong and is there a way to circumvent this behaviour. I really can't be sending out less than 1000 mails at a time cause it would take to long so that isnt an option.

Maybe write a bug report and ask there if email sending is really blocking survey taking part. - I can't imagine? Did you get an error message?
Or was your server busy with the sending?

Thanks for your reply!

It's the server that's busy sending out the emails. Is it possible to have the actual surveytables in another database so the survey wouldn't be affected when the script is sending out big volumes.
