The one mail you followed up to, saying it was delayed, was received
on May 17 and forwarded by the mailing list server into the outbound
queue within a few minutes. I received it within about half an
hour. If it took longer for you then the delay most likely occured
because cobalt.reboltech.com could not contact your ISP's mail
server. It is pretty much impossible to tell afterwards exactly
where the problem is (our end, our ISP, your ISP, the backbone etc).
