Continuous delayed emails to a hotmail address

Since before Christmas I’ve been experiencing continuous email delays trying to contact someone on there hotmail account, it wasn’t just the one account, I’ve tried other accounts too. Sometimes it can take days, other times just hours and in some cases I don’t think the email I sent turned up at all.

I’ve finally got someone to email back a successful message they received so I could check the headers out and this is what I’ve found.

I placed the headers in this Link and this is what i got back.

Source = bay0-omc3-s8.bay0.hotmail.com 65.54.246.208
Destination = pih-mxcore10.plus.net
Hop Delay = 0 sec
Total Delay = 0 sec

Source = localhost 127.0.0.1
Destination = pih-mxcore10.plus.net
Hop Delay = 57 mins 20 secs
Total Delay = 57 mins 20 secs


Can someone check this out for me, and maybe explain what’s going on, and maybe tell me how to go about fixing the problem. Like I say, I’ve been suffering with this for at least a couple of months now.

Regards

Darren.

Continuous delayed emails to a hotmail address

Hi,

The header shows that the mail was delayed on our side by about 57 minutes, the time matches the post on service status:

http://usertools.plus.net/status/archive/1168358302.htm

when we were seeing some mail delayed, so I think that can account for this email.

If your mail being sent to Hotmail is being delayed then to see why we'd need to see a copy of the header as received by the person you're contacting. If you can get that, then it should help.
