    For the "Process is already running" message, do this to solve the problem:

    1. Check if there is a stuck transient. You can install the Transients Manager plugin to delete all transients with wp_queue_process.... Get the plugin here: https://wordpress.org/plugins/transients-manager/

    2. Make sure that your WordPress cron is running. We often see customers with DISABLE_WP_CRON constant defined in their wp-config.php file but nothing else running the cron or a server cron which isn't working. If need be, check your server cron or remove that DISABLE_WP_CRON from wp-config.php temporarily.

    3. Check for errors in the queue under Newsletters > Email Queue? If the email settings aren't working as they are supposed to or the process cannot finish, the transient may become stuck. Turn on debugging under Newsletters > Configuration then go back to Newsletters > Email Queue and click "Run Now" after doing step #1 above to see if there are any PHP fatal errors? A parse error could indicate an outdated version of PHP.

    That should resolve it and then the emails can continue going out.
