how much emails does GAZ send per a request to the cron file?

Also, I can't edit the module set for a generator, after I choose another set and save, I reedit it to find the default set.

I suggest to use vbmail(), so If the admin uses SMTP in his configuration like me, mails will be sent via SMTP.

Another thing, I think it's better to use vb's mail queue which is sent on patches, or please put an option for using it.

Batches are sent using the setting in your settings

The reason why we wont be going via vbmail is because we may be extending the class.

The important thing is the mail queue not the batches.

Why you don't extend vB_Mail class and use the resulted extension class?

Why are the ques important? From what I can tell, when using qeues, the emails get put in the db, then pulled out again at a later date and then sent one at a time. Im not sure I see the major difference between a batch and a qeue in this situation. You are not saving any additional 'mail time'.

There was discussion about supporting additional features (i.e. sending images out as attachments).

Well,

My host only allows 50 emails in an hour to prevent SPAM so then a que is vital.

My point is that the system is not much different that a giant qeue. You would make your settings 50 and then have a cron job run every hour
