WinDeveloper O365 Mailer FREE for 1 Year
Fixes Included in O365 Mailer Build 1.0.011.25
A new build for WinDeveloper O365 Mailer is now available for download. This includes 2 important updates and we recommend all users to upgrade.
Reporting of SQL Connection Failures
In lengthy mailings it is possible for there to be SQL connection failures. The mailer reads SQL data in batches, reading 50 records at a time. A connection failure can block the mailer from reading the next batch of data causing the mailing to terminate.
In this case the mailing could stop without adequate error reporting. The mailing monitor would show "mailing completed". However looking at the list of submitted emails, one can see that not all recipients were processed.
In this update we are improving error reporting to clearly show that the mailing terminated in the middle. We also show details of the encountered error for the user to take the necessary steps in resolving the issue.
Mailing Wizard 'Only this Recipient' Functionality Not Working
The 'Only this Recipient' Mailing Wizard option may not work as expected.
The last Mailing Wizard step provides an option for sending the mailing to a selection of recipients (rather than sending the full mailing). One can choose from; all database entries, a range of database entries or a single recipient.
In very rare cases (we had a very hard time reproducing this), selecting 'Only this Recipient' does not work. Instead the mailing is sent to all recipients.
This update fixes the problem and includes special code that double checks this functionality to prevent this from happening.
