General Slowness of Sendmail

If I weren’t testing a sendmail capability, I would probably not care.
But just to receive something sent via a form in php using the php mail() function seems to take forever. Is there some setting I’m missing? It shouldn’t take fifteen minutes for the server to send an email that’s supposed to be just sent.

Is there likely a mail queue that my email is included in?
If that’s true, and it takes that long to send, doesn’t that mean that there is likely someone who is sending spam on my box?

There’s nothing to guarantee that mail delivery is instantaneous. Have you examined the message headers upon delivery?


Well instead of jumping to conclusions you can always contact Support and ask them since they administer the mail servers.
