|Bulk email controls (SMTP)in LabKey||Nat||2017-03-10 11:49|
We have run into an issue around sending bulk emails this week where the outbound queue of our SMTP server is *very* slow. Currently at almost 36 hrs after the original announcement was made from LabKey, there are about 1k emails still in outbound queue. The list is slowly shrinking ...
So our user base of emails is now almost 9K in size, so not small anymore but not huge either. Our IT dept recommended we send out bulk emails in 1K batches (5 min apart), or put a 5 sec delay between individual emails ... oye, not getting into manual management of batch emails...
I've pushed on them regarding whether there are controls/adjustibility on the SMTP server to automatically do this and I'm waiting to hear back. They also suggested I contact LabKey as to whether there is any outbound email functionality that is built into this product.
I did search the support base prior to sending this but couldn't find anything related.
