It is possible the immediate despatch of the campaign?

Hello, a question: is possible immediately or faster shipping campaigns?. Working from C #, and a list of 3 contacts takes more than seven minutes to get the mail; although the code will be:

//*schedule = new Schedule () {ScheduledDate = DateTime.Now.AddMinutes (2) ToUniversalTime ().};

 

For ex:

//  savedSchedule = constantContact.AddSchedule(savedCampaign.Id, schedule);

//  savedSchedule.ScheduledDate.Value;                                                           

//  print this value : 4/23/2014 12:52:22 PM

but in the web page:

//  https://ui.constantcontact.com/rnavmap/email/home

//  this campaign is scheduled : Wednesday, April 23, 2014 - 1:00 pm      8 min more !!!!!

but in the real live:

the mail is send 4/23/2014 13:00 PM

 

 

I need more fast sending mails. (delete this 8 minutes)

When a campaign is scheduled to send immediately, we add it to our scheduling queue.  Depending on the time of day and amount of mail already in the queue, it could take serveral minutes to go out.  Generally speaking, you should see your email campaign sent in a 5-10m window.  Also worth noting, for very large campaigns (>25,000 contacts), the send time itself starts to take noticibly longer to complete.  For example, a very large campaign to 50,000 contacts could take anywhere from 10-20 minutes to completely send based on limits simply on how much mail can be delivered to ISPs from the same from address over periods of time. 

 

Unfortunately, there is no way to get the email to go out in its entirety immediately.
