Can't send mail suddenly


I am testing a mass email script (swift mailer) and due to some bugs i have used it several times since last afternoon (and thus have send many emails to my email addresses to check if things are working properly. Now suddenly, no mail is going. Whatever I send using my server goes nowhere …

Wondering, is there any mail sending limit for DreamHost?

Thanks for sharing what you know friends.

The limit’s about 100/hr. Generally, mail that seems to go into a black hole tends to get delivered eventually.



Thanks Scott. Is there a way to increase that limit?

Contact support. You’ll have to justify why you need the limit raised, but if it’s legit, they’ll most likely approve it.

They’ll most likely want you to prove that it’s not unsolicited mail, which generally requires proof of authorization by each recipient.
