PHPmail extremely slow and sometimes fails

  • Answered
I currently have a very basic php page that loops through customer records (47 total) and emails them a small email using php mail. When I run a test email with just 2 customer it took one minute. It takes a total of 9 minutes to do 47 customers. After 11 minutes I still have not received an email. Is this normal? Is there a configuration change that could be made on the server? The list will be getting larger over time.

Hello phishyman2,

Thank you for your question regarding issues with PHPmail. I recommend logging PHP errors as it may provide a more detailed or specific message.

Also, check your email logs around the time of the tests for additional clues or record of the transmissions.

Thank you,
