I'm running a default Vmin Pro install on Debian Etch, with Dovecot and Postfix. I'm also pretty much a complete novice when it comes to serving email.
Currently it takes several minutes before an email received by the server is delivered to the mailbox. I'd like to reduce this delay as much as is practical. I'm often on the phone with a client as they send info, attachments, etc and waiting 5 minutes for it to be received in my email client is a little disruptive.
So... can anyone give me some direction as to what settings affect this? I see the timings area in Postfix but don't really want to mess with it without understanding it better, or even knowing if it's relevant.
I would also love it if there is someplace that has info on some best practices type standard configs for setting up the email services, if there are any notable ones that you guys are aware of.
Thanks, Gabe<br><br>Post edited by: spazzwig, at: 2007/11/06 20:41
