Auto-resume is a feature that gives your mailings more stability. It allows you to start even a very large email and walk away, knowing the email is being delivered despite unexpected problems such as a server reboot, MySQL or web server restart, etc.

This script checks for any inactive mailings and resumes them. An inactive mailing is one where messages have already been fully queued, mail sending has started and the send script has not responded within a reasonable amount of time (~1min).

To use the feature, a scheduled task (much like Dailymail) needs to be set up at a fairly short interval to automatically resume any mailings that may have failed.

The feature currently uses a script named resume.php and requires you to also include your Dailymail Password as the "pw" variable, much like when setting the dailymail cron task.

Six cron-style timings and command-lines are provided below, for 5 minute, 10 minute, 15 minute, 30 minute, and 1 hour. You should only set up one of these, according to your preference.

  • Replace example.com/mail with your domain and correct path to ListMailPRO.
  • Replace YourDailyPass with your Dailymail Password, set in the Configuration menu.

Every 5 minutes:

*/5 * * * * /usr/bin/wget -O /dev/null -T 0 http://example.com/mail/resume.php?pw=YourDailyMailPass 1> /dev/null 2> /dev/null

Every 10 minutes:

*/10 * * * * /usr/bin/wget -O /dev/null -T 0 http://example.com/mail/resume.php?pw=YourDailyMailPass 1> /dev/null 2> /dev/null

Every 15 minutes:

*/15 * * * * /usr/bin/wget -O /dev/null -T 0 http://example.com/mail/resume.php?pw=YourDailyMailPass 1> /dev/null 2> /dev/null

Every 30 minutes:

*/30 * * * * /usr/bin/wget -O /dev/null -T 0 http://example.com/mail/resume.php?pw=YourDailyMailPass 1> /dev/null 2> /dev/null

Every hour on the hour:

0 * * * * /usr/bin/wget -O /dev/null -T 0 http://example.com/mail/resume.php?pw=YourDailyMailPass 1> /dev/null 2> /dev/null

Every hour at 20 minutes past:

20 * * * * /usr/bin/wget -O /dev/null -T 0 http://example.com/mail/resume.php?pw=YourDailyMailPass 1> /dev/null 2> /dev/null
