....I've been told by people I write to that on occassion my e-mail isn't recieved by them until hours later or even the next day. I've sent it thru my outlook express address and thinking that was the problem....sent it thru Hotmail. Doesn't seem to make a difference....maybe someone can give me some ideas........... :whistling:

This problem is caused by a hold up along the email chain. It is not uncommon for email to get stuck for hours on end on a server somewhere. Reasons for this are usually because of a backlog of messages or a server has gone down somewhere and every email that goes through that server has to wait. Whatever the reason, there's nothing you can do about it.
