Im using Contact Form 7. It takes 5 to 8 seconds to submit the form, tried on a fresh install with no theme and no plug-ins but no luck.
I also tried with Postman plug-in, but no luck either. Im wondering if its because im using Google as my e-mail server. I think maybe worth the try with inmotion hosting email server but I dont want to mess things up and end up with a broken e-mail. What steps you recommend I should follow? E-Mail is arriving successfully, but receiving or sending anything from the page takes too long.
Also, I noticed that the site takes very long to load (around 7 seconds), even with no theme or plug-ins at all. Should I also check domain configuration or something?

Hello Aleksim,

Thank you for your question about Contact Form 7 and your site loading slowly. Your website loads without delay for me. If you are still experiencing issues with the contact form, can you provide me a link to it so I can test it out further? Any additional information you can provide is greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Thank you for your reply.
You can try with this link

We have tried in 5 different computer, different browser and 2 different cities. Clients are reporting they take 5 minutes for the form to send, they end up calling. I wonder what can it be.

I recommend reviewing your mail logs for timestamps and record of the transmissions.

If your problems persist, I recommend following our WordPress troubleshooting guide. Specifically the section on enabling error reporting.

Thank you,
