This option allows you to control the maximum size of the Digest. If the Digest is bigger than this maximum, it will be sent more often than the Digest Timing setting.

For example:  
If 32KB size is selected and the Digest size is 64KB on a certain day, your subscribers will be sent two Digests on that day.

Similarly, if your Digest is sent once per week, it will be sent more than once if it exceeds the maximum size.

  • Default digest maximum size is 384KB.
  • Default Digest Timing is daily.
