Upgrade 13 March 2013 — Throttled sending and WordPress sign-up form plugin v2

Scheduled maintenance and upgrade for dotMailer on 13th March 2013 includes the following upgrades and changes:

Throttled sending

Are you a large account holder who's ever wanted to control and spread the send rate of your campaigns over a longer period than our default send rate? Well, now you can ask for this very permission on your account! Not only does this protect your email sending reputation with big email providers, it also helps to ensure your customer service phone lines and resources aren’t swamped by a call-to-action.

Please note that this feature is not offered by default and has to be enabled for you. Please ask support about this.
