Jira Mail Queue Slow. Manual Flush only works when "Testing Connection" to smtp server

Currently, our mail queue is only sending out 1 email at a time.  When this happens, there is a 30 second delay after connecting to the smpt server before sending the email. 

When manually clicking "Flush mail queue", the queue doesn't flush.  The only way I can get it to actually flush is by clicking it, then going to the outgoing mail settings and "Testing Connection".  When the connection is tested, all mail is flushed at that time.

Is there any advice as to what I can look at here?

can you check the config for the "outgoing mail" especially whicht value is set for the timeout.

In addition can you could enable the logging for outgoing mails



and check if you find additional hints in the log
