Universal Email - email limits question

Universal Email - email limits question

A client of mine has just fallen foul of an email cap - 500 in one hour.

So I've been looking at how you can impose limits in UE.

The notes recommend adding a progress bar, so does this mean that the user is stuck on the page sending the emails until they are all sent?

In which case, if they are sending 1000 emails, at a rate of 500 per hour, would that mean staying on that page for two hours?

Or have a missed something?

no, they would not have to stay on the page.

the code is initiated on the server and will continue running regardless of the page being opened in the browser or not.

Thanks Jason - it didn't seem likely, but the reference to adding a progress bar made me wonder.

Hi Jason - I just looked at this, and tried to change the Email Limits to 8 per minute, keeping it within the 500 per hour.

I'm getting the following error message when I click Finish on the Create Email Message dialogue box:

While executing onClick in WAUE_Main.htm, the following JavaScript error(s) occurred:

At line 964 of file "MacintoshHD:Users:Iain:Library:Application Suppor:Adobe:Dreamweaver CS6:en_US:Configuration:Shared:WebAssist:Library:WA_GeneralUI.js:

Out of memory

Any ideas?

It was this one. (I've just taken out the reference to the database connection file for security).

looks like this was created with an older Universal Email version and you are trying to edit the email using Data Bridge.

the older UE did not support the time limkits that are now available.

instead of editing the email, i thinkk you'll need to recreate it.

delete the following code from the page to remopve the previous email:

php:
<?php require_once("../WA_Universal_Email/mail_PHP.php"); ?>

<?php 
require_once("../WA_Universal_Email/MailFormatting_PHP.php"); ?>
<?php
if (($_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST"))     {
  
//WA Universal Email object="mail"
  //Send Loop Once Per Entry
    
do {
    
$RecipientEmail "".$row_rsEmailCandidates["Email"]  ."";include("../WA_Universal_Email/WAUE_emailcandidates_1.php");
      } while (
$row_rsEmailCandidates mysql_fetch_assoc($rsEmailCandidates));

  
//Send Mail All Entries
  
if ("emailCanSent.php"!="")     {
    
header("Location: emailCanSent.php");
  }
}
?>



then re apply the Newer Universal Email and recreate the email message.

Thanks Jason - I did wonder if it might be because it was an older version, but the option appeared when I opened up the behaviour.

Will have a look at that tomorrow.
