    CDONTS problem!

    Hi experts!!

    Im building a web site for a friend, and its gonna be in ASP and includes CDONTS has for e-mail config to send e-mails for passwords etc.

    The system is a machine PIII with 256Ram and a 640Kbs connection with Windows XP Pro.

    Its only for his fun and joy

    Im with it right now, and the CDONTS is configured but thers a doubt...why the heck it takes 21 minutes do send the e-mail for a forgoten password, for example?

    Isnt there a way to short this time..at least for a couple of minutes? hum..is it the config? the connection?..

    Thanx alot for any help

    Well, for starters you shouldn't send passwords via email. You should have an alternative authentication scheme (such as secret question/answer or something) that allows them to reset their password themselves.

    Beyond that I'd check your mail server configs.
