Confirmation, Password Reset, etc. emails sending slowly.

#1
Hi there! I just setup XenForo on HostGator. I am sending emails for the email confirmation and password reset through the default 'Email Transport Method' with the '-f' parameter selected. It takes roughly 5 minutes for an email to be received. It doesn't get junked or anything else--it just takes awhile for the email to reach the destination.

I tried switching to SMTP, unchecking the '-f' parameter, and for both of these: I simply never received an email.

Is there any more information I can provide? I attached a screenshot of my settings below(domain retracted):


Thank you!

XF hands the email off to the server, so any delay is going to be on the server or further along the chain.
