    A few of my users (on a server with a very small population) are complaining of slow auth times on the mail server. Anyone have any tips to speed this up? I've never noticed my own mail on this server running slow, but with multiple users reporting it I have to see what I can do.

    We've been experiencing about 20-30 sec sleep time before POP/SMTP authorization in the last couple of days. Very wierd since we haven't changed anything..

    Check resolv.conf - could be that your nameserver info got wiped.

    Simply make sure that the nameservers listed in that file are valid and working.

    Yep - using pico, vi, whatever, edit /etc/resolv.conf and check whether you see your nameservers listed, or 127.0.0.1

    If you don't see your nameservers listed, you need to add them...

    domain domain.com
    search domain.com
    nameserver nameserver 1 IP
    nameserver nameserver 2 IP
