Does any have any experience with sending out emails using Zapier email? I need to send out 200 emails in a fairly complicated process using multiple tasks. If I set a dealy in the ZAP for 6 minutes, will Zapier mail send them out continously or will the 10 emails per hr cap kick in and stop my ZAP?

Hi @OnlineInterpretersWorldwide 

I’m glad that you found something that works for you! I will mark your response as the best answer, however, many email apps that have integrations with Zapier can support dynamic attachments. You can check them here: https://zapier.com/apps/categories/email

And if you ever want to explore this further, you can reply back and we’d be happy to help!

@Troy Tessalone  - appreciate your time. Finaly gave up on using Zapier for email. Loaded the pdfs onto dropbox with predfined format of file names that I also zapped to the SendInBlue Customer record. Then I defined a mailing campaign with a link to the required file...Voila. Done.

Gmail supports attachments in emails.

We’d need to see screenshots to have more context about what you are referring to related to the attachment.

Hi @OnlineInterpretersWorldwide 

Good question.

Sounds like you’d be better served using a proper email app, such as Gmail or a transactional email app: https://zapier.com/apps/categories/transactional-email

I do….but the chllenge is to attach a dynamically personalised pdf to the email ...in the form of a download url which has a limited validity date. ….Most email apps cannot handle attaching a pdf from a dynamic url directly to the email……… like Zaipier for email does…..

Seems as if I can answer my own question. I added a 6 minute delay in the ZAP just before the task “Email by Zaiper” and now the ZAP’s specific tasks have all been throttled back with a message that they are held…...So I guess that is not a viable solution. After the tenth email, Email by Zapier throttles back and sends out the email less frequently.

Sorry. The title should read “Zapier mail - If I send an action “ Zapier for email” every 6 minutes, will the 10 emails per hr restriction block outgoing emails”
