I wanted my joomla website to send emails, so for that I installed
I tested it by using putty
sendmail email@example.com content of email to check if it was working.
I made multiple attempts using that command and just one time it delivery the email to my address for my surprise.
Then I tested with the website.
Joomla website which is using sendmail service, it's actually working and sending the emails; but it us taking a long time to send the email.
For example posting on the forum: every time anyone posts on the forum it sends an email notification to the subscribers. It starts the
sendmail service, and the website takes about 2 to 3 minutes to publish the post and send out the emails.
After that Joomla gives an error message
Could not execute: /usr/sbin/sendmail
However the email it's actually sent.
Using "htop" I can see only 2 minutes after posting, the sendmail service it's started.
The website in question is www.gruenherzjaeger.de
Thanks for your attention.
