What is Email Batching and Quota Scheduling?

Email Batching:

Email Batching is a technique that allows you to send multiple emails in batches from the backend of your WordPress site. Instead of sending each email individually, you can group them into batches, optimizing server resources and preventing overload.

For instance, if you have a newsletter with 500 subscribers, you can set a batch size of 50 emails per batch. This ensures a smooth and efficient email delivery process without overwhelming your server.

Quota Scheduling:

Quota Scheduling is a feature that lets you set limits on the number of emails sent within specific timeframes. This feature is crucial for preventing your emails from being marked as spam because you send too many emails in a short period. You can define quotas based on hourly, daily, weekly, or monthly intervals.

For example, setting a daily quota of 300 emails ensures that your email distribution stays within acceptable limits, improving deliverability and preventing spam.
