Sorting email queue

The email queue uses a priority value, which is good. Within emails with equal priority it would be even better, though, if the administrator could somehow order the emails while they are still in the queue.

...or at least a 'Send now' button for selected recipients (now there is this only for the whole queue).

Even i would like to know the solution for this...... :)

The priority is not for sending priority, it's for the priority when it hits the destination server, not all mail servers support that particular feature anyway.

As far as send-now, there are a surprising number of hoops that would need to be jumped through in the guts of the scheduled task system (and some bugs that actually need fixing first)

I may be reading that wrong, but I don't think that's entirely correct.  There is a queue priority so things like password reminders, registrations, etc have a high priority and get sent first, say over a daily digest which has a low priority.

Oh, my bad, buried in the depths of ReduceMailQueue it is actually used.

However - and this is where the previously-mentioned bug comes in - if it fails at any point, it's reinserted with priority 1 (which is higher than most), even if it was a priority 5 or lower message before that.

My understanding was that the priority was *supposed* to be transmitted to client messages too for priority but hmm that's not in there.
