[Solved] Email Scheduling Settings

edited May 2016 in Newsletter plugin
In the Email Scheduling section of the Configuration screen, there is an option for "Emails per Interval" with a recommendation of below 100. The default schedule interval using WP cron is 2 minutes. But, when you select the "Server cron job" option the recommendation is 5 minutes. So two questions:

1. Why is the server cron suggested for 5 minutes and the default WP cron is 2 minutes?
2. If you switch to server cron at 5 minute intervals, does the suggested emails per interval rise 2.5x (250)?

In other words, which is better 100 emails every 2 minutes or 250 every 5 minutes or is there no practical difference?
