I have had over 100 new members sign up in the past 2 1/2 weeks, which is a big deal considering I had just 89 coming into September.
One of my friends was one of those signups, and he told me it took him over 20 minutes to receive the confimation email with password. Many of the people who visit my site are interested in asking a question at the time of signup, and I think because it takes so long for the password to arrive they move on elsewhere.
Anyone else experience this problem? And if so is there a fix so that it sends the confirmation email as quickly as it does the lost password email? The few users that have used the lost/reset password feature get emailed immediately.
