e mail delays

can anyone help - I am experiencing horrendous delays in the receipt of e mails; e.g I bid for an item on e bay, the notification e mail is produced virtually the same time but I don't get it for sometimes hours. I am experiencing delays of anything from 2 minutes to 26 hours. I have e mailed Tiscali endlessly and get next to nothing back. This evening I phoned them they sent me a test e mail which was delivered immediately but I guess if the problem is with their system and they send e mail it would be delivered immediately. My e mails come from all sorts of different sources and virtually all are delayed by some period most by at least 30 mins and some by many hours. I use Tiscali any time over a standard 56k dial up and am running XP with SP 1 and 2 installed on a 800Mhz processor with 256MB of RAM. This problem has existed now for some 8 weeks, I can't believe it is anything to do with my PC but Tiscali don't acknowledge any problems so I am stuck any suggestions?

I've just e-mailed you using the yellow envelope and you should be notified of this reply.

Let us know if/when they arrive.

Your e mail was delivered instantaneously - what does this tell me?

Send a reply to my earlier message and I'll reply.

I'm not sure how mails are sent from this site so we'll try with a message sent directly from my Outlook account.
