Slow email (Yahoo to Hotmail)

  sneakerman 10:19 13 Feb 2008

I discovered recently that when a friend sends me email from her Yahoo addresss (using Outlook as her email client) it is taking a long time for my Hotmail account to recieve the email, I do have a Yahoo address so I got her to send a test to to both Yahoo/Hotmail, surprisingly even the Yahoo to Yahoo took just over 2 hours, it seems to have been recieved by Yahoo within a minute but then sat for 2 hours before being delivered. In fairness I wouldn't complain about 2 hours although I think it is slow but the email was only recieved at my Hotmail account after 10 hours which is really too long. I cannot figure how to view the full headers in my Hotmail account.

What can I investigate to determine the cause of the slowdown?
