    I've noticed that when replying to any thread on my forum, as an user, after pressing reply, it takes roughly around 2-3 seconds to be posted. On Xenforo (here), it's instant. My question is, what am i doing wrong? I'm on a powerful dedicated server and the only thing I didn't do so far is to implement a caching service on my forum. Also, the jquery files are set-up from Google..not locally. Can those 2 things be the reason for this?

    Are you using SMTP or the built in PHP mail handler?

    SMTP..the PHP handler sent all my stuff into Spam..anyway, a different story..why do you ask?

    I found replies to be slow when using a slow SMTP server.

    well, i'm using google's smtp server and tbh, I don't know exactly how slow/fast it is compared to other smtp's..but i'm gonna do a test now to see if that's the fault

    I'd give it a try without using google as see if it improves things

    Hmmm, it looks like the queue() method as defined in XenForo_Mail is only a dummy method so far, and that xF attempts to send out mails to all subscriptions at once. Hope mail queuing is getting implemented in 1.2. :cool:

    If you are sending under 12,000 a month, have a look at Mandrill. That is what I'm using now.

    Defo give Mandrill a look then. I've been using them since November, and they are getting better all the time as well.
