The above extract from the headers of a recent "instant" notification seems to indicate a delay of almost 21 hours in the e-mail moving from signal.Groundspeak.com to mx.google.com (i.e. gmail)

Starting sometime yesterday, an email in queue on our mail server became corrupted and caused mail delivery to slow to a crawl. This created a large backlog of email and affected all mail destinations.


Early this morning I found and deleted the corrupted message and mail began flowing again. Most mail for highly performing destinations such Gmail should already have been delivered. Mail to Yahoo and other domins which either throttle us or have slower delivery rates may take a few more hours to receive all their backlogged email.


At this time, I do not know what caused the corrupted email, but I'm continuing to investigate.
