Thunderbird slow message sending

Thunderbird slow message sending

I use Thunderbird 38.2 and today for some reason it takes a very long time to send any message. Are there any other users experiencing the same?

Re: Thunderbird slow message sending

Is everything loading slow on the internet or just the Thunderbird program ?

Everything is loading fast but only sending email became very sluggish.

Re: Thunderbird slow message sending

Topic moved here from the connection board as this appears to be an E-mail application issue rather than a general connectivity one.

Re: Thunderbird slow message sending

We started seeing the same issue Oct 22nd. We use thunderbird (diff versions) on linux and win7 and both now experience a delay of about 6-7 secs sending every email. We didn't change anything on our end. The problem is still occurring. Note: our comcast IP address changed the same day, after years using a different IP.

Re: Thunderbird slow message sending

I'm thinking this is an issue on the email server side, not the client (thunderbird) and therefore may be a connection/authentication issue of some sort. It seems once the client finally connects to the server - the email very quickly transfers from the client to the server and sending is complele.
