I have a Perl script that recieves an HTML form input and sends mail.
The problem is that it takes very long time for the Perl script to open a session with the SMTP server. The SMTP server is very slow, so there is nothing to do about that.
Anyway, can I print the output HTML from the script to the client, and the server will wait to open an SMTP session?
I mean, print the "Thank you" reply to the client and the mail send will process on the server, thus the client shouldn't have to wait so long...
Hope for a good one this time.
