Sending ebooks to Kindle via Email - Very Slow

Since purchasing a second Kindle recently (a Paperwhite) and having the Kindle app on my iPad and iPhone, I've discovered the "send to device via email function".

Tonight I've had the chance to sit at the computer and to experiment with it.

I'm using a Gmail account and have Calibre automatically set it up in the preferences section.

It works, but it's slow. I emailed one MOBI book to all 3 devices. Each one took nearly 5 minutes to be transfered according to the job list.

Is this normal? The book isn't all that big, about 500 kilobytes or so.

When I tried it with another book using Outlook and sending the book as an attachment it went with the usual speed that Outlook operates at when sending similar sized attachments. ie. under a minute for all 3 copies to be sent.
