Forums/email were working fine, I must have done some sort of system update and now getting a lot of Email Error Logs
Everytime a followed post gets saved, it takes 20s+ seconds for the save to complete, so I've disabled all the email alerts and it is fast again.
Are there any common areas to check? (dedicated host/linux)
You’ll want to check the email error logs to see what is being reported there and then contact your email provider if there is an issue being reported by the email server. I’m afraid, server support is outside our scope of support but happy to move this to the community-based server forum if there are no questions with our software.
thanks, will check the servers email logs next.
Yes-if you would not mind moving me to the community forum that would be great, thanks!
Just to close this out...was under a bot attack from Iran, and the firewall rule I had in place failed to do a successful block.
It was consuming all the resources, and causing forum emails to fail.
Once I adjusted the firewall rules, the errors promptly went away.
I am a little embarassed about this being something so simple...
