Why sending email with cron planification?


I would like to know why Passbolt does not send automatically email.
Instead of use a specialized MUA like Exim if the user want it, the email queue is managed by a ugly poor crontab entry ?
Is there a good reason for that ?

Thank you for you feedback

Hello @pi11

Yes there is actually a good reason for this. When working with a large team, the application may need to generate and send a lot of emails notifications (and potentially do other things). Making that task happen asynchronously is actually a good practice as the response time of the request for the user stays the same disregard on how many emails need to be send. It will also allow us to do other types of notifications in the futures (like grouping all the notifications of the day in a digest as per user settings).
