A few months ago I made the switch from Outlook to Gmail… The switch has been mostly a good experience. However one issue I have detected lately is that messages are taking a little bit longer to send after I click the send button forcing me to sit around waiting like 10 seconds before I can do anything else in my inbox. So I just tried googling for “why does Gmail take several seconds to send a message” and guess what… No helpful search results. If I figure it out I will post the answer back here.
