1. Improve deposit payment system. This is the main task of this release. From now on, if you use deposit payment, registrant can now come back to your site to complete the remaining payment amount using online payment methods (instead of just paying the remaining due amount manually like in the old version):
- If registrants don't have account on your site, you can :
+ Using the tag [DEPOSIT_PAYMENT_LINk] in confirmation email (which sent to registrants after they complete registration). Then when registrants want to complete payment, they can access to the link in the email to go to payment page and process the payment
+ You can publish and use the ebdepositreminder plugin. That plugin will send deposit payment reminder to registrants (the messages is configured in Events Booking -> Emails & Messages section). You can use the tag [DEPOSIT_PAYMENT_LINk] in the email message. When registrants receive reminder email, they can click on the link to go to payment page and process payment.
Create a test plan in 4 days time. Register, pay deposit (use a coupon to save using real money?).

Manual Reminder would be useful for this (see 1)
This sounds like its the mail server throttling "thing". Many servers, particularly those on shared hosting, limit the amount of email a server can send per hour to control spam risks. Your host should be able to tell you what you are throttled to. Mine throttles at 80mails per hour I think. If we go over that all email is black holed. We use AcyMailing. We have password resets etc so we would generally set Acy to have 40 mails per hour (it has big lists), EBooking to maybe 15 per hour and leave the remainder to the site for other 'stuff'.
