What kind of machine are you running SIMS on?  I had this problem on an old
IICI because believe it or not, there was something resting on a few of the
keyboard keys, and all the interrupts were bogging down SIMS.

Subject: 15 second delay when sending mail


I have set up a SIMs server (1.8b9) and am using Cyberdog as my mail client.
When i check for mail it is very fast. However, when i try sending a
message, there is a delay of approximately 10-15 seconds before it is sent.
When i use the same mail client to send mail via my ISPs mail server, it
sends it without delay.

Therefore, it must have something to do with how my mail client is
connecting to SIMS smtp to send messages. Is there any obvious configuration
change i can make to fix this behaviour?

I have set smtp to relay for clients only, but i have not listed any client
hosts - instead i have set it to treat authenticated clients as hosts for 15
seconds and i connect via APOP.

thanks,
steve
