    php mail long time to inbox?!?!

    I'm using a small php mail script to activate, send password etc. on my site, but sometimes it takes a looooong time untill the email is in the users inbox... 10 min. plus... Is there a better way than php mail to do this?

    Thanks...

    Your mail queue ain't too loaded? Or perhaps the mail server is worked too hard from other sites too, if it's shared hosting. Had that once where there were like 500 mails in queue I didn't even notice and was wondering what took it so long.

    Well... The queue isnt to big, but it is a shared host... Is there any other options to this?

    Use a SMTP class and connect to an external server.. though good luck as I was looking at some of them on phpclassses and they look like a nightmare to get working..
