  • The parameter “Don’t send emails older than (in days)” in admin tools > manage recruiting settings is a mandatory field. It is used to avoid sending emails older than a certain number of days. This may happen if the email job fails, and the emails are held in a queue. Should the job start again, it would release the emails in the queue. However this parameter will only keep emails x# of days old in the queue.
  • PLEASE NOTE: this field was introduced later than other parameters in the same page. If this is not valued like:




  • Then it is strongly recommended to add a number (of days for the delay). Without this number disqualification emails could not work properly.
  • Also trying to save other parameters without filling the Don’t send emails older than (in days) will cause this error message:
