  • Email Issue on Shared Hosting:

If your web site hosted on a shared server then the email server could be overloaded sometimes. An email server has to make an outgoing connection to send each email message. When an email server has many requests for sending email, the emails are held in a Mail queue and sent out a one at a time. An overloaded server with many mail requests will cause a delay in sending mail. Sometimes a spammer will find an exploit in one of the web sites on the server and start sending massive amounts of spam. This will overload the mail server. If your mail is being delayed, you should make a complain so we can check the server logs and Mail queue. Somehow, we suggest you to buy ‘GSuite’ for email. Send professional email from your business web address (you@example.com) and create group mailing lists like sales@example.com, starting from $6/month/user.
