ME020303 - HOWTO: How to prioritize the delivery of outbound SMTP messages


How to prioritize the delivery of outbound SMTP messages.


Currently, there is no way to set delivery precedence for outbound messages. MailEnable will randomly choose the order in which messages are sent (other than scheduled 'retry' messages).

The priority can be balanced by increasing the number of send threads. This is controlled under the properties of the SMTP Connector in the MailEnable Administration Program and is called Max. Send Threads. Altering this will change the number of messages that can be sent at the same time. This means that a single 5MB file will not dominate the connection, as all threads will share the bandwidth.
