SES - Persistent Connections?

Does Mailwizz take advantage of the fact that the AWS SES API allows persistent HTTP connections in order to avoid the overhead of establishing a new connection with each message?

@KevinC - No, we send each message on it's own http connection. Sending via HTTP never actually had an issue speed wise, it's just the smtp protocol that is slow, http is very fast.

Of course HTTP is fast, but establishing a new TCP handshake for each message definitely adds up over millions of messages, especially if there is a slow or laggy network between your server and the SES API.

I hear you, but for us it's never been a problem, so we can't improve something that works just right.
