phpList is sending too fast


#1

My hosting provider limits the number of emails sent to 200/hr.
I’m sending a small campaign (205 recipients) from the browser window.

This is the log message:

The following events occured while processing the message queue:

[Thu 7 Jun 2018 10:16] [myipaddress] Started
[Thu 7 Jun 2018 10:16] [myipaddress] Sending in batches of 100 emails
[Thu 7 Jun 2018 10:16] [myipaddress] Processing has started,
[Thu 7 Jun 2018 10:16] [myipaddress] One campaign to process.
[Thu 7 Jun 2018 10:16] [myipaddress] Please leave this window open.
phpList will process your queue until all messages have been sent. This may
take a while

[Thu 7 Jun 2018 10:21] [myipaddress] 65 messages sent in 300.70 seconds
(778 msgs/hr)

These are my settings in config.php:

define(‘MAILQUEUE_BATCH_SIZE’, 100);
define(‘MAILQUEUE_BATCH_PERIOD’, 3600);
define(‘MAILQUEUE_THROTTLE’, 2.0);
define(‘MAILQUEUE_AUTOTHROTTLE’, 0);
define(‘USE_DOMAIN_THROTTLE’, 1);
define(‘DOMAIN_BATCH_SIZE’, 1);
define(‘DOMAIN_BATCH_PERIOD’, 120);
define(‘DOMAIN_AUTO_THROTTLE’, 0);
define(‘MAX_PROCESSQUEUE_TIME’, 0);

Any ideas what to change?
Does phpList automatically continue sending? Now the windows is showing:

Sending in batches of 100 emails
Script stage: 5
65 messages sent in 300.70 seconds (778 msgs/hr)
80 failed (will retry later)
Finished this run
Less than batch size were sent, so reloading imminently

Thanks!
