Slow Email Delivery

nacker2000 asked
Last Modified: 2010-05-18

I have a server running IIS6 and have a php script that sends out emails. Most emails sent via the script to hotmail address and others get delivered to 'instantly', but the odd few such as btinternet accounts for example take hours!?

The emails are being successfully sent and are not failing or being queued, they just take ages!? Is this my server or the recipients?
