I have a new XenForo forum set up and I'm having issues with the script sending emails.

PHP sendmail and SMTP are both ridiculously slow. Emails are currently going out in a roughly two hour window.

I've verified that both sendmail and SMTP work, so would that indicate that the problem is with XenForo or could this be an issue on the host side?

Apologies for the trouble.

I don't think this is related to XenForo. Yesterday our outgoing mailserver was blacklisted due to users sending spam, briefly de-listed, and blacklisted again as deferred (backlogged) spam made it through the system.

We have since been able to identify and stop the source of spam and our SMTP server is no longer blacklisted. During the period of blacklisting, this caused a lot of mail to become backlogged. It was not lost, but there are delays as the system catches back up. We anticipate that things will go back to normal within the next day.

Thanks for clearing that up! Seems to be working much better now.
