My forum seems to be running fine now, I'm not sure why! Oh well, as long as it works.

Thanks for your help.

Dear Daniel Whitnall,

Thank you for contacting Online Support.

It appears you are referring to the email delivery being slow. We apologize for this inconvenience. Generally emails using our hosting accounts to send mail will not have a large delay if any delays. The reason you are experiencing this is because we currently are encountering a known issue where the hosting accounts are taking 1-4 hours to send email. We are working promptly to resolve this matter. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Let us know if you have any further questions or concerns.


Matt P.

If you are hosted by Godady

Check the following;

Administration » Host Settings

SMTP Server: relay-hosting.secureserver.net

It must read “relay-hosting.secureserver.net” or the forum will run slow for you and you members.

"I THINK I've 'fixed' the smtp timeout thing. It was a case of RTFM. I had somehow skipped the "add a root tag to yafnet.config" now that I have the root element in place, the forum is snappy again,"

What is this and how do i fix mine???????? mine is slow as molasses in January.

Just tried that Halo, still getting the ' error sending mail ' at the bottom !

by disabling the emails, it still gives you the error code.

however your site will now run faster (if you were having issues with the SMTP)

disabling the email makes the site run quicker, but you wont get any email notifications

it is meant to be a temporary fix


biggest disadvantage with this option is you cant have email registrations (i think?)
