I wonder, how You can determine, that BwPostman TimeControl sends in packages of 10. There is no real optical feedback of the sending process of BwPostman TimeControl. You can see the outstanding mails at the queue, but that is all.
Nevertheless BwPostman TimeControl uses the sending process and parameters of BwPostman. So if You set the numbers per step to 50, BwPostman and BwPostman Time Control sends 50 newsletters per step.

BwPostman and BwPostman TimeControl can't do anything else than You asked them to do. So if the newsletter was send 3 times, You sent the newsletter 3 times. What You should know, because a newsletter, which is internally prepared for sending and is processed, so that it appears at the queue, gets the status sent an cannot be sent another time, except You copied it. As mentioned above, all emails of a newsletters prepared for sending, nevertheless You send with BwPostman or BwPostman TimeControl, appears at the queue. If an email is sent, it disappears from the queue. So You can see, which subscribers already got the newsletters. If something goes wrong with a specific subscriber, it will not disappear from queue, it will be tried to send second time. See the manual.
The time needed for sending all emails of a newsletter depends on the number of subscribers, the numbers per step, the entered delay between the steps and the size of the email. The average sending time for an average email is about 1 second or so. But if the newsletter contains big images and/or big attachments, the sending time for one email could could increase up to 1 minute and more. Paired with a delay of lets say 10 minutes, You may encounter such overall sending time.
