Extremely Slow Delivery Rate

I am getting the sending rate of no more than 2000 emails per hour.

Digital Ocean VPS
  • RAM 512
  • 1 CPU
  • SSD
Amazon SES connection via API
  • Campaign recipients approx 200,000
Amazon SES restrictions
  • 50 emails per second
  • 250,000 emails per day (24 hours)
PHP INFO
  • phpinfo is located here
CronJob Set Up
  • screenshot of cronjob settings is located here
Can someone please point me in the right direction as in how can I improve the sending rate here? 2000 emails per hour is just ridiculous.

I am sure there is something wrong with the settings and not the actual mailwizz software which I really like.

Thank you for much support

@sami1255 - 2k/hr is miserable, we can def. do way better than this :)
Best way to see what's the deal is to send a few campaigns from command line with debug on to see what exactly happens and where the app spends more time.
If for example it takes a few seconds to connect to the smtp server because the latency, then you'll have a slow delivery.
Usually, you should be able to shove at least 5 emails/second.

So test that and see what your results are.

Thank you.

I increased the server capacity to digital ocean 2GB from 512 MB
The cron settings look like this now
I am now able to send around 200,000 emails in about 4 hours. Which is fairly okay.

However can we improve this further?

@sami1255 - keep in mind that in mailwizz everything happens in batches, so lower numbers always perform better than higher ones.
And testing is the mother of all experience :)

Related to donations, you don't have to, really. Instead, get a useful extension, like the Backup Manager one ;)
Or pick yours: http://codecanyon.net/user/twisted1919/portfolio ;)

No worries :) I really wanted to donate anyway. Just purchased the backup manager as you recommended. Thank you for the awesome work.
