This plugin is working as expected. In my case, following a new topic or new WP post, email notifications are sent out over a couple of hours. If several posts happen in the same time frame, emails could take many hours to be sent. That is how it should be.
However, there are certain emails for which this delay is problematic. For example, sending a password reset link. The user will give up waiting long before the email with the link arrives and will make another reset request, which will invalidate the link in the email yet to arrive.
So certain emails need to be sent immediately and not through the queue. I can think of:
- Password resets
- Email address verification emails
- Notifications to admin, such as incidents of user lock-out, new user registrations etc.
I doubt that there is any easy way of identifying these? Maybe it would be best to be able to register a number of text patterns and if the outgoing email matches any of these patterns, it is sent immediately rather than being placed in the queue?
What do you think?
