Difference Single-Upload & File-Upload

The single upload variant uploads the issued persons individually to rapidmail. The advantage of this variant is that the recipient list is available more quickly than the file upload variant. A disadvantage of Single-Upload is that it does not support duplicated e-mail addresses.

On the other hand, the File-Upload variant supports the upload of persons with duplicated e-mail addresses. The disadvantage of this variant is that the duration of the upload is relatively longer.
