Please remember to use Reply To All.

In this scenario, is it looping back, or is it still making a trip out
to the network? Do you have any kind of packet filtering going on?

HTTP access is the slowest of the 3 access methods, but that's a
*huge* difference which doesn't make a lot of sense to me. Someone
else suggested directory access controls & if there's a lot or they're
particularly complex, that may be taking a performance toll as well.
