dealy on email notification sending

Post by Prometeo61 » Thu Nov 16, 2017 11:50 am


I'm facing a strange behaviour with the email notifications. I receive them many hours after the user write a post.
I tried to use both my own SMTP server and google one but nothing changed.

Do anyone have any suggestion about it?

Thank you in advance,
Best Regards.

Have you checked with your host?

There is, and always has been, a common misconception that email is instantaneous - it isn't and never has been. An email can take several hours (and in some cases days) to be delivered.
