Read the headers of the received message to see where it was & when it was there  eg the delivery path.
Check your servers log files to see when the message was really sent.
eg smtpfront-qmail/current


We have the same delayed mail problem!

We have been running SME 6.0 for about 3 years now.
The email to and from internal accounts to outside are poor.
Delays sending, receiving, no receiving.
Nothing has changed in many months.
Turned off spamassassin and clamav additions for now.

how best to troubleshoot what is going on?

The problem might be on the hotmail or yahoo side ... I am using version 6.01 and my box ( with some custom installed contribs) tends to instantly send emails.

 Since my network printer took a dive  I email files from my sme box to my hotmail account so I can print them out. Normally by the time I walk from the front room to the back room (maybe a 1 min) I open up Outlook express and the email is in my hotmail account. Now every blue moon I notice if I am away from home at work and I send an email using my sme server account and it takes a few mins to arrive in my hotmail or yahoo email.

I also know that a friend of mine emails me from his isp account (cable) and I cannot send to him because the ip address of my box is from with in a dhcp range and as so they block it.

Maybe the email is being stopped and put in a que to be scanned  once the other email server received it and once its scanned and they see that its not spam they let it go thru.
