    In the "Email all members" section, you can choose the option:

    Utilize Mail Queue (recommended)

    How often do e-mail go out?

    Is a CRON task necessary?

    Nothing urgent

    Thank you in advance.

    The only thing I can think of that it uses is the Mail Queue setting in Mail settings. But that is a guess. I would think that this uses the task manager like everything else. We recommend setting the task manager to Cron as it's more reliable with that. The team is very busy on v6 so I cannot ask them this question at the moment. If no one else has info for you, please private message me Monday and remind me to check with the team.

    Thanks Donna.

    Don't worry, it's not urgent.

    It was just to get the information. We use an external SMTP server most of the time.

    Good day.

    We use SendGrid here. Our managed sites use BryZar free SMTP. I wish I knew the answer to your question though. If I can grab a developer's ear, I'll let you know.
