Throttle sending

CampaignMonitor is sending out our newsletters too fast for our servers to handle the traffic load.

Is there a way to throttle the sending of a campaign, so CampaignMonitor fx. only will send out 5.000 mails an hour?

Best regards,

Hi Soeren, welcome to the forums! At present, we don't have this in our app, however a potential workaround could be to either segment your lists and send in batches, or use our A/B testing feature to send in two stages (if your list isn't bigger than 10k, hopefully!).

I've taken note of your interest in throttling your email sends and will let you know if this is something we add in the future.

Hi Ros,

thanks! I'll look into the A/B-testing, sounds like the fast way to solve this problem until we figure out why our servers can't handle the load.

Best regards,
Soeren S.

I just wanted to second this question/request. The ability to throttle sending would be very useful to our clients - as several have resource-intensive e-commerce sites & traffic spikes (particularly in the first 1 hour) can limit the effectiveness of our campaigns. Thanks for considering!

Please, this would be nice. It would be great to be able to spread the send over multiple days and be able to have it all under one campaign, so the reporting could all be under one campaign.

I emailed about this the other day too.

Add my vote in too :)
