As soon as you start a new campaign, your emails will automatically be scheduled to be sent as quickly as possible based on the sending window you have set. However, multiple considerations may impact the sending and duration of a campaign.
In this help article, you will learn more about:
Email campaign statuses
When you create an email campaign in Hunter, they will all be visible in the Campaigns section. Each campaign will be listed in order of creation, with the newest one on top. You can see the date of creation, the campaign's performance stats, and the email campaign status.
👉 An email campaign can have different statuses:
Draft: refers to an email campaign that has not been launched yet.
Standby: when there are no further emails to be sent at the moment.
Active: is an email campaign that is active and has scheduled emails to be sent.
Paused: refers to an email campaign that has been manually paused.
Live: a live status means that this specific email campaign is sending right now.
The daily sending limit
The daily limit associated with your Gmail account in Hunter. This value can go from 1 to 400. To limit the risk of being rate-limited by Gmail (in particular if your account has been recently created), we recommend limiting the emails to 100 per day.
The sending window
Your sending window in Hunter: A narrow window and/or a large delay between emails will increase the duration of your campaign. You can either use the default sending window or override it and use a custom sending window for each campaign, from the settings step of your campaign as well.
Parallel campaigns in Hunter: in Hunter, the oldest pending emails are always sent in priority. This means that if you have multiple active campaigns, the new ones will have to wait for the oldest ones to be completed before they can actually start being processed.
Emails sent outside of Hunter: we don't have control over the volume of emails you send outside Hunter (through Gmail, an email client, or any third party). For this reason, we can't be sure we'll be able to reach the daily limit defined in Hunter.
Gmail and GSuite limits: Google limits the number of emails you can send per day (Learn more).
For this reason, when you launch a campaign, we'll only provide an estimation of the completion time as there's no certain way to predict the exact delivery date of an email.
Finding your queued emails
When an email campaign is actively sending, you can see a Live status update in the Campaigns section:
To get a more detailed insight into all your pending messages and the emails that are scheduled to be sent you can review the Queue section.
Here, you can filter by the From email address:
And by a specific Campaign name:
The following views will provide you with a breakdown of the pending and scheduled emails.
The emails queuing to be sent in the next 5 minutes are added to the Outbox. The view is also automatically refreshed.
In this section, all the scheduled emails are listed. They will be progressively added to the Outbox based on your sending window.
