What does it mean that messages or emails are in sending queue?
When we are sending a message and it remains in the queue, this means that, at that moment, the message can't be sent and must remain in the outbox until the problem is resolved.
It's likely that there are emails in the queue that need to be sent quickly to avoid problems in our schedule, although sometimes this isn't due to any problem related to the email marketing software you are using.
Where can I see my queued messages?
When you send an email, you will be able to see which emails are in sending queue if the number of processed emails exceeds the number of delivered, ignored and bounced emails.
This means that there are some messages waiting for a new delivery attempt at the request of the destination server.
Why some emails get stuck in the sending queue?
When we send a newsletter, the filters gradually analyze the content of the emails and how subscribers react to it. This slower delivery flow is just for that, to look at the campaign with a magnifying glass.
If they see that the content is being rejected by users because it is unwanted or harmful, it is likely that the messages will be considered spam and the emails that are still in the queue will be blocked.
Normally, the emails will be delivered, unless one of the large ISPs blocks the sending IP, in which case delivery will be interrupted.
This is not common, but it can happen.
How do I fix emails or messages in sending queue?
Well, on the one hand, it's not a common occurrence. On the other hand, we can't avoid it 100%. But some options are as follows:
The first thing is to wait around four hours and, after that, check the status of the campaign:
How can we prevent this from happening with our newsletters?
At the end of the day, it's a question of following normal good practice.
So, with regard to the question about why some emails are added to sending queue, it is mainly due to an excessive volume of newsletters for the reputation of the IP or domain, or it is related to the fact that our messages have been flagged as SPAM several times.
Check the status of the newsletter and, if it hasn't been delivered for some time, you can contact support.
