Emails update too slow


Hi

For a few days now I haven't been getting any email updates on threads that I am subscribed to. Seeing my inbox empty for the umpteenth time I went to the user control panel and checked out on my subscribed threads and many had been replied to.

So I naturally posted in them and then I got the update of a message that had been posted there many hours ago(before I replied again). Plus there are threads of which I get updates 2-3 days later. In most of the threads it now takes up to 4 hours before I get an update.

Is any one else also having a similar problem?

I had this a while ago but I think it was just my own mail provider. Everything is ok for me just now.

We aren't having a problem that I see on this end. Is any of your non-LQ related mail being delayed?

LinuxLala: Does your ISP have something like SpamAssassin set up to screen email? My email takes quite a long time to arrive, not 3 days, because of my ISP overworked mail servers trying to bounce back spam and scan the mail, and when the filter is disables it isn't quiet as slow.

No other mail is being delayed. Accept for one which I got about hours after it was sent

And no, I don't have any spam assasin or any such stuff and this problem has just creeped up, It was not so before.

LinuxLala, take a look at the message headers for one of the delayed e-mails. "View->message Source" in Mozilla or Thunderbird. At the top you will see a list of the servers that the mail has passed through. You can then compare the dates beside them and see where the biggest time gap is.

Code:
stat=Deferred: Connection timed out with mx2.mail.in.yahoo.com.

That tells us that things are working fine. Like I said before you will need to look at the headers from one of the delayed e-mails to see where the slowdowns are occuring.
