    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.

    Sounds about right. So, you're basically saying the host, HostGator, is the cause for this?
