Customer Question
Inbox works great, but...

Inbox works great, but every time I send an email (even just a few words of content) it takes about 10-20 seconds to send. What gives?

Technician's Assistant: Who is your email provider (Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook, etc.)?

I use network solutions

Technician's Assistant: How do you usually access your email? On a phone or tablet, or through a web browser?

On my macbook air. Interestingly it works better on my iPhone and iPad,

Technician's Assistant: What troubleshooting have you tried?

Checking to make sure I am using the latest version of Thunderbird (I am) and restart the program.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Email Expert to know before I connect you?

Using OS X El Capitan operating system on my mac

Hello,
I look forward to helping you today.

I must ask a question or two before we begin. Thank you in advance for taking the time to answer.

On the MacBook Air, which program do you use to access your email (Outlook, Mac Mail, Entourage, Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc)?

Thank you,
Jason

P.S. If you do not know the answers to any of my questions or are confused about something, please let me know by replying on this page.
