I noticed for the past few days no emails were being sent for posts on the forum. I checked the dashboard and found 0 emails for the past 3 days. No idea why, I had to reboot the server and then it started sending emails but here are a few issues I am noticing:
- There was no notification provided on the admin account that it’s having issues sending emails, even the logs didn’t show any errors
- After the reboot it starting sending the backlog of emails but the problem is after sending the initial batch of 100 emails now I’m getting an error
Job exception: 454 4.7.0 Too many login attempts, please try again laterand it’s stuck in that loop continuously trying to login to sending the remaining emails but the server is rejecting it.
It looks like for EACH email it’s trying to login to the SMTP server. This IMHO is a bug, it should not login to the server for each email when there is more than one email to send, it should reuse the existing connection.
- Now it’s stuck in this trying to login loop even few seconds, how do I stop it and ask it to back off for 10-15 minutes and try again?
