I’m still a bit confused and trying to retrace my steps.
Here’s a screenshot of the service I mentioned.
And what I found in the online phpList manual/docs. I’ve posted below.
I have access to an SMTP and IMAP servers for the domain associated with my instance of phpList, so maybe I don’t need a need a remote queueing service.
Not clear on relationship to the queuing service and traditonal SMTP/IMAP server services.
And am assuming that newsletter tracking data (opens, clicks, etc.) is delivered back via HTTP rather than email protocols…yes?
3. Any other questions?
Use the Hosted Service
phpList.com now has a “secret” way to get our servers to process your queue for you. There are no payment plans and if you use this, you will help us to tweak the way it works, and in return we will process your queues without charge.
We offer this, because the last thing we’d want is that the queue processing is an obstacle for using phpList. From any point of view, but mostly performance, we advise the use of commandline processing because that is the most powerful way of sending. phpList Hosted is using commandline for everything. But in some cases this may not be an option. This is where our service hopefully fulfills a need.
To use the phpList.com queue processing service sign up here
Once you signed up, get your API key.
The first time you try to manually process your queue, you will get the option to set up processing with phpList.com. You can use that to set up the API key.
Alternatively go to
and enter the API key.
From then on, when you place a campaign in the queue, or requeue an existing one, it will activate the processing from our servers. We will run the queue very often and make sure your campaigns are sent.
If you place an embargo on a campaign, the hosted queue processing service will detect this and wait until your embargo has passed to send your campaigns.
We do keep track of the statistics, and we will give you a summary in your account pages. The phpList.com service uses the exact same system as the normal remote processing outlined above and we have no other access to your system.
