[resolved] Form works, but sending takes (EXACTLY) 2 minutes (4 posts)

    Searched through the FAQ and Support-forums and Googled around, but couldn't find any similar problems.

    Example here: http://www.ictnetwerknijmegen.nl/?page_id=23 Sometimes it does work within a few seconds, but it usually takes 2 minutes.

    I'm a fairly experienced webdeveloper, but can't figure this one out. I'm thinking 2 minutes is a built-in timeout, but I can't find what's stalling the process. Any suggestions, anyone??

    Try deactivating all other plugins and switching to the default theme. If this won't fix it, highly possible that it's a server side problem, contact your host support.

    Thanks for your reply. I just tried it without any other plugins on the default theme (Twenty Eleven), but unfortunately with no avail...

    Weird thing is, if you close the tab while the ajax-request is still pending, it still sends the email without problems. I just can't figure out what the hell it's waiting for...!? :/

    I'm not much of a server-side-guy though, so any feedback anyone can think of would be very much appreciated.

    Turns out that this was indeed a server-side problem. I ended up working around the problem by switching to gmail's smtp-servers, using this plugin:

    Using the "Configure SMTP"-plugin, which was particularly gmail-friendly.

    Takayuki, thanks for your help anyway :)
