Emails arriving up to 30 minues late

  Gummomarx 16:28 12 Oct 2019

The email account of my website is taking up to 30 minutes to receive messages via my Samsung phone. The same emails arrive immediately on MS Outlook 2013 via my PC.

My website host is convinced it's not an issue on their side and Samsung takes no blame.

None of my other email accounts are affected (Gmail, Hotmail, NTLworld etc).

Anyone know if there's a possibility that a fault lies within my internet provider's structure?

It's not necessarily a fault.

The travel time of emails can be notoriously variable and it appears to have little to do with its speed down the wires. Half an hour in not bad by all accounts.

You can set them to look for new messages ,say every 10 minutes or so if using a computer not sure about a phone though.

Up until Friday, I always got them within seconds. Both Samsung and my website host agree that something's wrong but they don't accept that the fault lies with either.
