Queues email sending from your site so that instead of being sent immediately it is sent on cron or via some other queue processor.
Useful for high traffic sites that can send a lot of emails on individual page requests.
The Drupal 7 version supports sending with any email framework, i.e. it works perfectly with Mime Mail module or any other of framework that handles the actual sending of emails. It also uses a standard Drupal queue to do the queuing of emails. It requires at least Drupal 7.12.
The Drupal 7 version is actively maintained.
The Drupal 6 version is in feature freeze, and only serious bug fixes and security issues will be fixed.
The Drupal 8 version is based on the Drupal 7 one and has all the same features/benefits. As Drupal 8 isn't stable yet, Queue mail is also not stable, but we'll aim to release on the same day that Drupal 8 does.
The Drupal 8 version is actively maintained.
Note that MailQ (only available for Drupal 6) is similar in goals, but implements the batching itself, rather than using the excellent Job Queue framework, and hence uses more resources and is more complex than Queue Mail.

The Drupal 8 version of this module was ported by Steven Jones.
