How is this possible?

A statement from Stuartli:

Tiscali, for one, has been taking up to eight or nine days to deliver some of my e-mails..

I thought that these things were more or less instantaneous, so long as then other end was available to receive?

A good way to test is to Email yourself.

So there is an ISP problem or a connection problem along the way.

Think "Royal Mail" and "currently".

It may be that corporate systems hold Emails for various reasons, virus scan for example. Or maybe until a quiet period.

They obviously don't take time off!

Maybe they do - Tiscali Tours to Benidorm!

This matter is shaking some of my beliefs.

Maybe MI5 are on to you and reading your mail. I hope you havn't been a bad boy.

Tiscali have stated over the past week, that they are experiencing email circulation problems. They have now issued a message, stating that all is back to normal. I have had a recent email from Tiscali, advicing that my email box is becoming full.So perhaps I am one of the culprits causing server blockages, and adding to Tiscali's burden.Normally I have had no problems with sending or receiving [worldwide]emails of late.
