Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Thread: Server sending email slowly?

  1. #1

    Server sending email slowly?


    I have a generic PHP-powered email form set up which sends an email to me with whatever message the user inputs.

    I've been making some enhancements to the form and have been uploading the modified PHP to test.

    The server seems to send the email incredibly slowly, which makes it hard for me to work quickly, using my trial and error system. Does anyone know what determines how fast the server sends the email, and if I can speed it up?

    I end up waiting 5-15 minutes to receive the email I've sent to test it out... it's just so tedious. Would be so much more convenient if it was instant.

    you cant speed it up... your email will just get listed on the bottom of the mail queue... and will be served whenever the server is set to start mailing... most servers do this imidiatly, but some servers have a fixed time on when to send emails.

    you might be able to send email faster by communicating with an external smtp server, explained here, but i personally think thats going a bit to far for just sending emails...

    You can never underestimate the stupidity of the general public.
