Just looking at the headers on the worst of my messages. It seems
that my ISPs SMTP server held up the message for around 17 hours, the
last 3 hours of delay occurred within the *groups cluster.

This is based on the assumption that the *groups servers are accurate
in reporting their timezones as 0000 offset. I would have thought the
servers were in the USA, but it looks like they must be in the UK.

Looks like I am going to be very happy with my change of ISPs next
