I have noteiced this with some clients at work - problem seems to be between two of the mail servers at Xtra from looking at the headders. Dont know if they are doing anything about it as the website has the usual "no current issues"

When you live your life on Twitter and Facebook, and are only friends with like minded people on Twitter and Facebook, you are not living in the real world. You are living in a narcissistic echo chamber.


My thoughts are my own and are in no way representative of my employer.

Have seen similar problems lately - wierdest was that I forward emails sent to my Xtra account on to Gmail (easier to access from the Apache and overseas).  Over the weekend they were appearing in Gmail several hours before they appeared in my Xtra inbox!

I have contacted xtra over 30 times on behalf of my clients regarding delayed emails.  I was told that one of their servers was stamping the wrong time onto the emails - that is, it was stamping emails with a date and time in the future.  The email then did not get sent until the time stamp matched the current time and date.  This seemed to make sense as I was getting emails from Xtra clients who claimed to have sent their email the day before, yet when I received them they showed as having only just been sent.  Anyone else had this issue?  Does anyone know if they have fixed it?

I have a client tht occaisionally has problems with delays in recieving email that has originated from Xtra servers (although my customer doesnt use Xtra at all).

We never got it worked out, and its intermittent.
