How to Add a Cron Job List in Mailwizz?

This blog covers steps on how to add a cron job list in Mailwizz. Read on to find out more. 

A cron is a task that runs at regular intervals on your linux server. Being a task, it means that at the time it runs, it will do an action and in MailWizz case, this means it will send campaigns, process bounces, do cleanup and so on.

Why do you Need to Add a Cron Job List in Mailwizz?

MailWizz uses cron jobs for the very simple reason that the tasks that it runs, such as sending campaigns, can take a very long time to complete. If you were to run these tasks on a regular web page, then not only would we need to interact with these pages in order to trigger the actions, but it would also mean that we would need to keep those pages open for as long as they execute, and the execution could fail for any one of a dozen different reasons(say script timeout, or memory limit, etc) . 

If you add a cron job list in Mailwizz, all of these tasks are done without requiring our participation and are able to run for an endless amount of time without requiring our involvement.
