  • E-mail Issue

    I recently installed vBulletin 3.0.7 and the forums are working correctly. The only issue I have is that the forum e-mail system is really slow. For instance, when a user registers it takes approximately one hour for the e-mail to reach them. The same thing happens if I send a test e-mail from the Diagnostics menu as well. I have tried sending mail to the mail server and from the mail server outside of the fourms e-mail system and the mail goes through almost instantly. I have tried setting the mailqueue to no and lowered the batch e-mail setting to 1. Also, I have tried enabling the -f option in the server settings as well. Any suggestions?

    If turning off the mail queue doesn't solve this, then it's a server issue. vB sends the email to the server immediately. What the server does with it is beyond vB's control.

      Hi Spinarooni. I have the exact same problem (only I have vb 3.0.6), could you please tell me abit about how you solved it? Did you just tweak sendmail or reinstall it? I know restarting it didnt help

      Have looked into installing qmail, but if a simple tweak is enough, it would be helpful.
