I am having a problem sending emails on an SSL server. It times out.  I have tried the identical code on my local machine and there is no problem. Any ideas?

You don't say how exactly you're using SSL or how you're sending mail. SSL on your web server makes no difference to a running PHP script because it's on the "inside" of the encrypted session. SMTP over SSL/TLS is a bit harder, and it's not yet supported by PHPMailer (which I'd hope you're using instead of mail()).

Your timeout is more likely to be a problem with your mail server setup than SSL. If you're just sending regular mail, try using PHPMailer. mail() is a waste of time.
