URL Shortening helped to resolve cron job issue.



We have decided to use cron job for sending emails to our Forum members, as the  Mass email/News letter option in the Forum is not able to handle the "per hour limit" for the emails sending.

Our email managing Tool is having two options while sending the email. One is for specifying the message identifier, and another is for specifying the email list.

They are sent as the querystring  parameters.

But the cron job takes only the first parameter and ignored the second one.

So, to avoid this issue I just used the url after shortening it using bit.ly. Now it is working fine.
If you know the actual solution for this issue, you can share it thro' the comments.

Please check whether you are having '&' separator after the first param in your query string

Yes, "&" is there. Even I have tried with "&" also.

Try using quotes around the url. Worked for us.
