I have been using SquirrelMail on my 1and1.com account since the server switchover earlier this month. All was well except I was having issues with sending mail. It took FOREVER! I googled for “squirrelmail slow”, “squirrelmail slow sending” etc and had no luck. Someone mentioned I should try using the php/sendmail function in the config file and now it sends mail lickety split!
Set it up like this in the config file and you should be good to go:
$useSendmail = TRUE;
$sendmail_path = “/usr/sbin/sendmail”;
$sendmail_args = “-i -t”;
