The new Email Campaigns Tool in WHMCS 8.0 is pleasing, especially the Schedule Campaign option.
However, the Email Campaign functionality currently has a hardcoded limit of 25 emails per run and can run every 5 minutes by default. This 5 minute is based on our cron setup. It can be every minute or every hour.
There isn't currently a way to override this limit.
If my cron is configured to run every 5 minutes, then every 5 minutes, I can only send 25 emails. If I have 10k customers, my mail campaign will take more than a day to complete.
For a time-critical mail like a maintenance notification would be very difficult with this setup.
I request to provide a feature where we can overwrite this setting based on our requirements.

We used to control the number of emails that can be sent for each cron run but now it takes hours to send only a few hundred emails.
We hope we'll get this ASAP!
It's frustrating that we even have to request this feature. The Email Campaigns tool is clearly a replacement of the Mass Mail too. When creating this new tool, why did WHMCS not properly consider the old functionality? It feels like a feature has been taken away.
