View Full Version : Long mail delays

Is anyone else experiencing long delays in receiving email? I'm getting some up to 3-4 hours after they're sent.

I'm experiencing delays sending mail (not sure about a receiving lag). I sent a mail to a mailing list I run on my account, and it took over 24 hours for the mail to go through to everyone on the list! I am sure this has to do with the fact that the mail server is bogged down by those **** Netsky and SoBig (et al) virus e-mails. In fact, my mail log indicates I received more than 4000 (yes, four thousand) of them yesterday totaling 152MB! At least it is down to half that amount today. Usually, I get about 700 of them a day (but they're under control because of Procmail and SpamAsassin).

Am I the only one that is bombarded this badly?

Hello FZ,
We are actually not showing any server congestion today and so you should be able to receive your emails just fine. If you want to private message me your domain I'll take a look at it and see what is going on there. Keep us posted on progress.
