I experience a delay of several seconds when receiving presence stanzas from after going online, the same with message receipts, pings etc. after not communicating for some time. I’ve never experienced this “problem” when connecting from other servers to

While it’s not disastrous, I still find it somehow irritating.

Thanks for this service,

the initial delay is because of DNS + connection dialback between the two servers.  Both servers (yours and needs to authenticate one with the other before interchange messages.  It is normal for this initial handshake to take a few seconds (around 2 in my testing), but once completed, messages flows without delays (until there is no usage on the connection for some time, as you said,  as that causes the connection between the servers to be discarded and need to be reestablished again when needed).

Probably you didn’t notice this before when connecting from other servers because some others users on those servers might been contacting too,  and so that particular channel was keep active most of the time.
