Mail Queues by PBCI
Queue, Throttle, Send SMTP emil through multiple providers. Automatic resend when non-delivery received.
Send mail using SMTP without exceeding the the rate allowed by your mail provider(s). Mail can be sent using multiple user logins/passwords to give fault tolerance and make each mail message somewhat unique so that it is less likely to be flagged as SPAM/UCE by either your or the downstream mail providers. Messages can be automatically resent when the plugin detects Non-delivery messages (NDRs) returned from mail sent by the plugin.
Email can be throttled per outbound SMTP account. Limits can be set for maximum number of recipients per hour and per day.
- Sends mail via SMTP
- Send mail no faster than the configured number of recipients per hour and day. Keeps you in complience with your providers email sending limits.
- Configure multiple SMTP accounts to use for sending messages (Gmail, MSN, Go-daddy, etc)

fixed typo introduced in header tweaks
a couple of comments added, readme updates
Queues are prioritized in order of last used and then lowest number of errors. This should spread email more evenely over multiple queues in low send frequency sites.
Fixed warning from wpdb->prepare in WP 3.5, removed superfluous prepare call
How are non-delivery messages retrieved?
Configure a single mailbox to collect non-delivery messages. Setup each sending mailbox to forward any messages received to that single mailbox. The plug-in accesses that mailbox using the POP3 protocol. User name a password for the POP3 mailbox are configured in the settings page.
How many queues can the plugin support?
No limit really, but we have tested in excess of 20 simultanious SMTP queues
Does the plugin work with gmail?
Yes. also it has been tested with MSN, Dreamhost, Go Daddy, and self hosted SMTP servers
Non-Delivery (NDR) messaging processing note: plugin should recognize common non-delivery formats. But, because non-deliveries are free form, and can be highly customized or specifically localized the plugin may not recognize the message. If you provide a sample non-delivery message we can make the plug-in a little smarter.
