Re: XOOPS Newsletter Mailer
........ I read that the module evennews had problems to send HTML, I installed today this module and I made some tests in html and it working perfect.
Which is your opinion on this?
Evenews has problems especially with importing users & sending mails when it deals with a lot of users (I rtied to use it with more then 5,000).
It simply is doing those actions in one process and causing "exsusted massages" .... due to script execution time limitations in the server's php.ini ....
The only workaroud I had was to import it's tables to my office local server, raise limitations in php.ini to more then 120 MB and import users into it...
and that one didn't solved the "sending problem" that stoped sending after about 2000 emails .......
So ... if you has a lot of users forget about Evenews, wait for a new mailinglist or work with an external one (search the forum for a few names ... but then ... you'll need your users to subscribe independantly or import them somehow ...
