We are using godaddy shared hosting but have found their sendmail server takes 8-10 minutes to send emails. Besides switching to another host or upgrading to virtual dedicated is there anything we can do to speed it up (something for free or very cheap, that is)?
Could switching our mailserver to google apps affect sendmail? Could we configure our own version of sendmail & set it up on our GD directory? (ie instead of hitting the server's default sendmail app we hit our "secret" one instead at /path/to/our/webhost/sendmail). Any other thoughts?
