My Gmail / Thunderbird Imap hangs, so called stand by mode, has been under discussion for about 15 - 20 years. It takes to send 1st simple E-Mail 20 s. Second E-Mail is 4 s. And what about if you have pictures to send on stanby mode or saving to send later !!!! Same thing with Windows 10 and Ubuntu Mate LTS 18.04. And no one has not got an solution to this "Fault". @gmail.com / Thunderbird

Same thing 1.st sent mail 27 s and the second 27 s and 3.rd 7 s: @outlook.com / Thunderbird

I have been following discussions over the years and Mozilla Support and Community has different kind of proposals, byt no solutions. One solution is to change "Authentication", Normal Password /OAuth2 and stand by mode stays off 2 - 3 sendings ! So only solution is that NASA has something to do with this and I am not giving you enymore money ! Perhaps it shall be Protonmail !

If sending is slow but otherwise reliable, you might try send in background https://wiki.mozilla.org/Thunderbird/TestPlans/SendInBackground
