Email Throttling: Limiting Email Sending Speeds


Sometimes you may not want e-Campaign to send emails too fast to avoid flooding your mail servers. And some mail servers may impose per-minute/hourly/daily quota to your outgoing emails; they will block further emails after reaching your email sending quota.

In such situations, you can use the "Email Throttling" feature to set up limits to the email sending speeds.

1. Click menu "Tools -> Email Throttling"

You will see the following window.



2. Click the New button to set limits to a particular mail server

You can configure up to three speed limits for a mail server: per minute, hourly, and/or daily. Bland or 0 indicates "no limit."

e-Campaign will pause email sending when whichever limit is reached, and automatically resume sending after all limit conditions become false.

The following are some throttling examples.



Example 1: Sending no more than 3 emails per minute, 60 per hour, and 400 per day



Example 2: Sending no more than 10 emails per minute. There're no limits at all for either hourly or daily



Example 3: Limiting email sending speed via Microsoft Office 365

To throttle the email delivery speed via your Office 365 account, please enter the special pseudo-hostname office365 in the Hostname field.



Example 4: Limiting email sending speed via Microsoft Exchange Server

To throttle the email delivery speed via your Exchange account, please enter the OWA hostname in the Hostname field.

Suppose the OWA URL for your Exchange server is https://owa.lmhsoft.com/webmail/, the OWA hostname is oaw.lmhsoft.com
