Subscribe to Email number of subscribers and delay

I love the plugins and glad I subscribed for the full package!

I have two questions:

1. Is there a limit to the number of subscribers I can have in Subscribe to Email?

2. When I publish a post it took about 5 min this time, I figure it was setting up a cron job to send a notification to the (currently 1000) subscribers? Is this always going to take that long, and how long will it take when we have 10,000k?

Thank you
Steve

    Hello Steve,

    Thanks for posting on the forums and for the nice words Its really appreciated.

    Is there a limit to the number of subscribers I can have in Subscribe to Email?

    No there is no limit on that

    2. When I publish a post it took about 5 min this time, I figure it was setting up a cron job to send a notification to the (currently 1000) subscribers? Is this always going to take that long, and how long will it take when we have 10,000k?

    It always takes time when the subscriber count increases as if it sends 10000 emails in bulk at the same time, it might spike your server usage and host might block it down.

    That is why the Mail Batches feature is there !

    I hope that helps explain the delay

    Please feel free to ask if you have more questions on the same.

    Cheers, PC
