LimeSurvey have an option to limit the sending of email: «Email batch size». For some server or SMTP configuration, it can be used if you a limited number of mail to send. With another configuration, sending email take a lot of time, and with more than 150 or 500 emails : this broke server PHP limit.
This plugin is made for user who need to send more than 500 emails and don’t have a email limit to send. It allow to send all email with only one click.
