I host my domains with KiwiWebHost - who I believe are now run by Orcon.
Stable set-up for decade+.
The Problem: Amazon Verification Code emails take 2-4 hours (to arrive).
Which is a problem - because their V-codes time-expire after 10 minutes (by design).
All other emails arrive & depart as you would expect.
Even Amazon Order-Confirmation emails arrive fast - before I can switch from browser to Outlook.
So - let's say 1-2 seconds for a 'normal' Amazon email.
That's from Amazon.com, Amazon.de, Amazon.co.uk - whatever.
From Amazon Accounts - whoever sends the V-Codes - a Verification Code email takes 2-4 hours.
Experienced this in August, September and now November 2018.
Many emails - say 30, over that period. Always hours - not seconds.
Let me reiterate - all the following have been stable for years:
Amazon account, KWH, email addresses, VF fibre connection, GB LAN (not wifi), Outlook 2010, PC
Is this bad karma - voodoo - or is there a non-magic explanation ?
