ok, it seems I have another problem. A strange one that I cant seem to find a solution to - or even someone else with the same issue.
To start, on my shared hosting I dont have access to create a scheduled process. So, the only thing I can do is send the email when someone comments on a blog post.
As I was testing this, sending emails to my yahoo account as a test was slow. If I tried to send two or three, it took about 20 seconds total. Even sending just one took 5-10 seconds. That is obviously unacceptable for some to wait that long when posting a comment on a blog. I mulled over some possible work arounds and could find none.
It occurred that I never noticed that kind of delay when I test my registration process. the only difference is that I tested that with my non-yahoo email.
It turns out, sending email from CDO to a yahoo account is VERY slow. Sending to my GoDaddy account or my work email is instantaneous.
I havent tested other account (google, hotmail) but will.
But, any idea why sending to yahoo is slow but sending to other emails is just fine?
