Re: Problem @ XOOPS Admin - MASS MAIL SEND :(

The exact memory allocation needed for how many users has unfortunately not been researched all that much. We are dying for some reliable test data, so we know where to focus our work.

The problem is either
a) The memory is exhausted
b) The script takes too long to execute, so the server will stop it
c) Something else

I believe that the correct solution to this problem will be to implement a cron job scheduler in the XOOPS core framework so mailings can be split into chunks and executed safely. However, this is a feature, which we will not see until 2.1/2.2 - at the earliest.

I am very sorry, but I do not have a simple solution to this problem at this time.

So the final statement is that XOOPS is unable to send mass mail to the users?

No, that isn't the conclusion I read.

Xoops WILL send mail out to a large number of people. But that number is finite and the devs need some solid data to determine where the bottlenecks are.

The number of mails sent varies based on the server's hardware/memory/CPU, the network connection for the server, the number of users being sent to and maybe other factors. If you have 25 users, you shouldn't have problems. Where *YOU* start having problems (or don't have problems since that is good info too) is what the devs need to know.

Hello,

On Xoops France we send each month over 2300 mails to members for the french newsletter with the Xmail module.

You can setting the number send per page and others criterias.

Uh.. i am just going to start sending a "beta" newsletters, probably weekly and i have 44 members currently..

Or does newsletter modules (such as evennews) have their own system for this where this problem is solved already?

Thanks
Daniel
