A Note About How Outreach Schedules Email Deliveries:
Outreach checks all account throttles (rules that control when and how many emails can be delivered) when scheduling email deliveries to determine which emails can be delivered immediately.
The following are examples of throttles:
Sequence Schedule. Sequence Schedules determine when an email can be delivered to a Prospect within a Sequence. For more information regarding Sequence Schedules, refer to the Sequence Schedule Overview article.
Org- and User-Level Email Limits and Safeguards. Email Limits and Safeguards manage the amount of email deliveries that can be processed at either the Org or User level. For more information regarding these settings, refer to the applicable articles in the Additional Resources section of this article.
How To Locate Delayed Emails:
If you notice that your emails are not delivering at the time you anticipated:
- Click on the outbox icon on the left hand navigation panel in Outreach
- On the top of the outbox page, click on the “Scheduled” emails
