Further to this previous posting on the subject, are people still getting delays on their incoming emails?  I changed to XNet just over a month ago and had to go through the whole updating of email addresses for Her Indoors and I on several online sites, and it seems to take a while for confirmation emails (as well as others) to come through. 

For example, emails from Facebook have taken upwards of six hours to come through - by which time, the confirmation session has expired in Facebook.  It took me about a week to finally change my details and I'm still missing with my wife's account.  I did do a test of changing to my Windows Live email to see if it was a delay at Facebook, but that came through near instantly.

No problems here for me, and never has been.

Confirmation emails arrive basically instantly considering how I have my mail setup - I have to wait for my mail server to download emails off via pop3 before I get them myself. In other words, they can take as long as five minutes before they reach my inbox.

There should be no problems at all, we don't have any Mail issues, just ran several mail tests to my own Xnet Account on a DSL connection , all looks fine Lugh.

The ealier thread you linked to was an issue with the Mail Server at the time and was only for a day or so.  

Yes I am a employee of WxC (My Profile) ... but I do have my own opinions as well Wink
