Email limits and how OJS manage it?

Dear team,
We are planning to launch a new publishing house and I came to know the hosting provider limits that I can send and receive 250 mail per hour.
In that case, If I have 300 users and I just published an issue. The users will get emails at a time, right?

So exceeding 250 mails, what happens to the other 50 users. will they not get an email?

Thanks in advance.

Hi @Sulthan90,

In the next release there will be a checkbox allowing you to choose whether or not all journal users get notified of a new issue, so you’ll be able to disable it if you want. Otherwise, yes, you’ll send out 300 emails.

OJS will still try to send the extra emails after you’ve passed your provider’s quota; what your provider does with those is up to them, and OJS probably won’t know about it.
