My site offers users the ability to send each other private messages. Each time this happens, I utilize Django's EmailMessage class. In other words, I don't queue anything, instead just send the e-mail then and there.

My question: Is it possible that the app. is crapping out if many users are utilizing this functionality at the same time? And if so, are these errors being logged anywhere?

It is possible. A failed send should be logged in the apache logs. Django must connect to our SMTP servers to send mail. Only we have access to the SMTP logs. If you would like us to take a look please submit a support ticket with the e-mail address, mailbox name and app name and we can take a closer look.

Thanks for the quick response. I don't see any errors in the logs. I'll submit a ticket shortly to see if you folks can find something in the SMTP logs.

This does raise an interesting question: how many SMTP connections can I have open concurrently?

There is no hard-set limit on the concurrent connections. There is a limit, however, on the messages you can send per 24 hours - 500 messages by default. This limit is noted at http://www.webfaction.com/legal/tos
