SMTP too slow with AWS SES
I am having trouble understanding this problem.
I have two boxes (ec2, droplet) and same exact code. I sent an email from both using AWS SES SMTP settings and both send emails as expected.
But on droplet, it takes about 3-5 seconds for it send and on ec2 is near instantaneous.
Note, I am talking about delivery of the email to the inbox but just sending the email from the server (issuing the SMTP request)
Can someone shed some light on this?
