    Hello All,

    I use Horde with a BCC to my gmail account.

    When I send mail, I always get a copy in gmail.

    Sometimes when I send mail, it goes out immediately (i confirm by looking in my gmail).

    However, sometimes, when I send mail nothing happens. Then 30 minutes later I get the last 5 emails that I've sent..all showing up at the same time in my gmail.

    It's almost like my mail server gets blockage at times...and I have to send several mail messages before any of them actually deliver.

    Is there an easy fix for this? (I'm a quasi-newb and avoid SSH whenever possible.) :)

    For a test, set your BCC to also send to another offsite account, like yahoo.

    If they show up at the same time at yahoo and gmail, it could be on your server.

    If they show up at different times, it's likely spooling somewhere else...

    Thanx for the response, Lytekk.

    Yes. That is what I do.

    Sometimes they BCC immediately.....but as I said, sometimes they pile up until there are 5-8 and they all arrive 20 minutes later.

    What is "spooling," and how can I track/fix this?
