    Default Email backlog issues

    Hi everyone,

    I've finally discovered what's causing the email backlog issues, where emails are being sent out by really old threads.

    The systems sends out emails in batches, so every ten minutes or so, all the latest emails are sent out. In the most recent update to the vBulletin software the developers decided to limit how many emails that are sent out to 10 each batch

    This is all very well for small forums, but when I finally discovered where the mail queue was, we had a backlog of about quarter of a million emails going back a month. Sending ten out each time wasn't going to go anywhere fast...

    So, I've deleted anything that is in the queue before yesterday (apologies if this means anyone misses anything, but I thought something being a month late isn't much help anyway), and I've upped the amount it send out each time.

    In short:


    • You should stop getting older subscription/pm notifications now
    • Anything that should have been sent before yesterday, you will no longer get (sorry)
    • Sub emails and PM notifications should be sent a bit more timely now.


    Added If after the weekend you are still having email issues of some kind, it could be unrelated to this, so please let me know.

    The other option was to send them all out at once, which would have probably borked the server!. If you check your settings page it will show you any of your subscriptions or PM's that are new (that you haven't looked at already)

    As far as you can tell, are they all different?

    Thank you!

    That explains a lot!
    Perfume appeals to my nose the way music appeals to my ears, exquisite food to my taste buds, photography to my eyes, and great loving from my man to my sense of touch.

    I can safely conclude, then, that PERFUME IS ART in its purest form.

    As an artist, I therefore have a responsibility to buy as much perfume as I can. You know, to learn about art and all.

    Thanks, Grant. I didn't get inundated with updates, as I think I'm only subscribed to two threads. But it does seem to be working for me again, and that's nice!

    EDIT: Oh, and I am getting private message updates again, which is also nice.
