200 emails per 15 minutes

We suggest you send 200 emails per 15 minutes when you first set up.

You can increase up to 500 emails per batch after a successful first try. Above that, MailPoet might have hiccups while sending. Rest assured, your emails will still be in the queue, and will eventually send.

Why these limits? Your server's max execution time and memory limit affect how many emails you can send per batch.  Read more about that.
