E-mail Frequency - not working properly

The settings display this "Next digest will be sent on: February 27, 2014 1:00 am"

and "The time now is 1:23 pm" - which is correct for my time zone.

My main settings in WP are set for Honolulu.

My problem is that the e-mail does not send out at 1:00am

It actually seems to send out the e-mail only after I have logged into the WP dashboard.

Any help would be appreciated.

    Hello @Raphael Lowe

    Welcome to WPMU community!

    I hope you are well today and thanks for asking the question.

    The system uses wp cron service, it's not server cron. So, it will not act exactly how it looks like. It depends on the traffic in your server, so when you logged in, or someone visits the site the program can be executed.

    As this is not server cron, so it is not self executable. If you have lots of traffic in your site, then it should send email in time (e.g. assuming someone will enter in your site at/after 1.00 am in this case).

    Hope it helps! Please feel free to ask more question if you have.
