MDaemon 10.x: Message Priority Values in MDaemon

MDaemon uses a number system when creating or processing messages to determine message processing order.

These numbers or message priorities can be changed via the content filter to change the order of messages to be sent out. Ranging from 0 to 99, here are some guidelines:

10 = Urgent
50 = Normal
80 = Bulk

MDaemon will attempt to deliver a message with a value of 10 before one with a value of 90.

MDaemon mailing lists also have the option to set a custom priority. To set this:

  1. Click Lists.
  2. Click Edit Mailing List...
  3. Select the mailing-list you wish to edit.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Type in the desired value, between 0 and 99, in Delivery precedence level for this list.
  6. Click OK.

When MDaemon processes a mail queue such as remote or retry, it looks for the lower precedence values first. If a queue run is already in progress, MDaemon does not insert higher-priority messages above ones that are already queued if they come in after the run has started.
