Currently there is a delay of about 1 minute before an email notification is sent out by JIRA after a change has been made to an issue, e.g. when a comment is added. Is there a way to configure JIRA to reduce this dealy, or even make it instantaneous?
Mails are queued up and the queue is checked by the Mail Queue Service once a minute. Since the service is a regular JIRA service, you cannot reduce this timeframe further.
If you need instant delivery, maybe you can write a post function, which will create and send an e-mail circumventing the normal JIRA mail system.
You could install a Quartz job that flushes the mail queue every 5 seconds, then you wouldn't have to handle creating the mails etc. Personally I think if people can't wait one minute for an email something is wrong with your working practices.
Unless, you're using emails for some sort of integration, which I think also is a bad practice.
Our other services send mail without delay, which means that if we take an action and we get an email for it, we can mark that email as read right away *while* we're still focusing on that particular task. Having to wait a minute or having to come back to it later and reload context can be a real pain.
I'd love to see a way to have emails sent out immediately rather than held up in a queue.
