Q8400035: I have more than 1.000.000 messages in my Message Database. The performance is slowing down when the message database is updated. Is there anything we can do about it?
Yes you can. It is a good practice to archive message to a separate database when you have a lot of message in your Message Database. Make sure that archiving is enabled in the 'Options' view of the Configuration, and set a proper value for the 'Archive After' field. There's no recommended value for it, it depends on the number of messages you have and how often your view is refreshed.

Q8400015: What is the meaning of the status: 'Outgoing / Pending'?
The Message status has changed from Scheduled into Pending; this means that it is time to send the message. The message has been delivered to the channel that is responsible for sending the message. The status will soon change into a value indicating that the message was delivered, or - in case of a failure - the message failed.

This cannot be configured in the Manager. You can run a script for that. This script can also be scheduled, for instance once every minute, to automatically resubmit messages continueously.
