send mailing through localhost

I have powermessenger working on localhost. Can you send emails from local host? I have been testing and no luck.
I added the smpt out email server to email settings (smtpout.secureserver.net) it's for godaddy.?

Also when importing an email list should the header label row in the CVS be discarded or left in the file?
Does the Database automatically assigned a UserID when importing an CVS file or do I need to assign it in the CVS file??
If I have email lists from different clients is the way to separate them by using different user groups i.e (group1) or (group2), etc. during the import?
If yes.do you import 3 separate cvs files, 1 for pm1_users, 1 for pm1_groupsubscriptions, and 1 for pm_usergroups? again are any of those filed automatically added?

To send through local host, you would need to install an SMTP server. You should use the remote host for testing.

The GoDaddy SMTP Server is problematic at best. It is slow to relay messages when it is working at all, they also have pretty strict limits on the number of email that can be sent in a given time period.

On Importing, the primary key column for each table will auto populate. the other fields will not.

you would need to do 3 separate imports for the 3 separate tables.

Hi Jason,

when manually send emails through a godaddy email account, I been limited to about 20 emails. whit that said I would like to review the setting I have it setup as follows...how ever when watch the counter it seems to send out 1 email every 1 second, can you explain?
Max Emails:20
Emails Every: 2
Seconds Between Emails: 1

I manually stopped it approximately every 20 emails for fear of godaddy stopping it. I thought with these setting it would send out 20emails every 2 minutes

you have the time between email set to 1 second.

it will send an email a sec up to 20 emails then pause until 2 minutes is up, then send another 20, with a wait time of 1 second between each email.

to force the wait time between emails, you could change the settings to:
Max Emails:20
Emails Every: 2
Seconds Between Emails: 6

use 6 seconds between the email to send 20 every 2 minutes (120 / 20 = 6)

I am in the middle of sending out a email blast with the setting you had recommended and it seems to be stuck on 42 messages sent, see attachment:
Max Emails:17
Emails Every: 2
Seconds Between Emails: 6

Do you have any suggestions, I'm thinking of stopping it and just use the default settings?

Also what order does the mailings go out...user_id:?


3 hours later, does not look like anyone receive any emails but it shows most of them were sent, what experiences do you have with godaddy?

Go Daddy is problematic at best on sending emails.

I Have seen their SMTP Server take a day or 2 in some cases relaying emails, I dont think i would relay on GoDaddy hosting for sending a large mailing.

I have had numerous problems with GoDaddy and sending emails. In my experience, sending emails using Go Daddy will only work if you are using a linux hosting account with PHP 5.

The GoDaddy SMTP Servers are:
relay-hosting.secureserver.net - port 25

smtpout.secureserver.net - port 80

make sure that the from address is a valid address for the domain.

even when the settings are correct though, the GoDaddy servers can be quite slow in sending.

Where the mailing stopped after sending 47, i would suspect that the email limits where reached, go daddy is pretty strict on the emails that can be sent.

if you stop and restart the mailing, it will only send to the addresses in the mailing list that have not already been sent to.

the mailing list order is by UserID.

good info, do you recommend another hosting site that would work efficiently.

If yes, I would think I would have to move the domain and emails along with power messenger or would I just need to move the power meessenger?

1 and 1 and Dreamhost are both good hosting companies that i recommend.

I dont follow what you mean by:
"move the domain and emails"

if you change hosting, you would need to have the domain changed to point to the new hosting company.
