Email still delayed

Although there is no notification that I can find about problems with the service, I have just read an email which appears to have been sent at 13:16 on Thursday, but didn't arrive until 3:41 this morning, Saturday. As far as I can see from the header it appears to have been delayed within Plusnet rather than the sending ISP.

Email still delayed

Funny you should mention this. I too have had an email from Plusnet which itself has been delayed.

I created a mailbox ( although I run my own mail server I use mailboxes as backups so I dont have to finger the server Wink ). Now I know that the creation of the mailbox could take up to 24 hours, but the email got sent out on the 14th ( marked clearly inside the email ) but never arrived until the 16th. It took an impressive 43 Hours ( approx ) to deliver the email.

Date and time in email is marked as
Date: 14/06/2006 18:42

Actual arrival time and date
Date: 16/06/2006 14:00{/b]
