Description Aniruddha 2014-02-13 18:03:08 UTC
Since I upgraded to Fedora 20 sending emails has become very slow. It can take up to 15 minutes to send an email and sending often times out. I tried different smtp servers (my own, my isp, and google) but sending is slow with each smtp server. For now I use Thunderbird and geary, sending works without problems in both.

Thanks for a bug report. I cannot tell what happens there, but could you look into Edit->Preferences->Network Preferences and check Proxy settings there? I would try to use "Direct connection" options in there, if it's not set there yet. Other option is to get a backtrace of evolution during the sending, to see what it does (it most likely waits for a response from the network, hence the idea about proxy settings). To get a useful backtrace, please install debuginfo packages for evolution-data-server and evolution and when evolution is sending the message, issue this command from a terminal:
   $ gdb --batch --ex "t a a bt" -pid=`pidof evolution` &>bt.txt

the bt.txt file will contain the backtrace. Before uploading, please see its content, whether it doesn't leak any private information, like email addresses, passwords, and so on. I usually search for "pass" (quotes for clarity only).

This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.

I can't reproduce this anymore, please close.

Thanks for the update. I'm closing this for now, but please feel free to reopen in case you'd face it again in the future.
