Is there a clear pattern to the order in which emails are sent from CiviMail queues? For example, emails are sent from the queue

  • in no specific order
  • sorted alphabetically, A-Z
  • sorted by contact ID ascending
  • ...

Wondering after seeing this question.

I understood it was smallest civi id first (or "sorted by Contact ID ascending" to use your description)

  • That's how I understood it as well - they'd go out in the order in which they were created (and therefore smallest ID to biggest). Commented Apr 30, 2018 at 4:56
