Thanks,

Why no more than 10 per hour? I think it's not hourly limited, because I
tested it sending up to 250 messages to a friend in 10 minutes and all was
received.

In the other hand, 8/hour is a good rate, about 190 DM (invitations for the
event) is enough for almost everybody.

What do you think?
