the mail() function
Moderators: macek, egami, gesf
Hello - I have a simple contact form that works; but after clicking submit, it hangs for several seconds before showing the "thank you" page. Can anyone offer insight? Is it most likely due soley to the mail server, or..?

Do you write to the database? Or, do you just send out the mail?
Usually the mail server doesn't really slow down the system as the message is just thrown into a queue to be handled by the server, only checking that the message is actually queued.
If you are doing reads and writes to a database before (or even after) sending the message, your queries are probably unoptimized and slowing down the processing of the page.
