Enterprise 4... Running Sendmail 8.x.
I'm using the PHP mail() function to send some confirmation emails out
when a user submits a form. My understanding is that this is basically
a wrapper for sendmail (specifically, sendmail -t -i).
In my development environment, this works great. Everything is fast
In my production environment, it takes 10-15 seconds or more before the
mail() function completes. If I comment out that function, the page is
nice and quick again.
Does anyone have any ideas of what sort of configuration issue this
might be (I'm assuming this is a config issue). My sendmail config
(/etc/sysconfig/sendmail) is pretty simple right now, it's just
specifying DAEMON=yes and QUEUE=1m.
Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Re: PHP, sendmail, and mail() - VERY SLOW - please help
application. If it's also slow it means that your SMTP server (or
enviroment) is just slow.
I use www.xpertmailer.com to send emails, it has tons of great features
[attachments, CC, BCC, etc] and excellent support (via forum). Try it!
I send emails via GMail and it takes 1-3 secs.
