I am having issues with email.  One of my clients emails don't arrive until a full day, sometimes more, later.  
My ISP claims they are not to blame. What do you see on this headers? Who can i point the finger at?

so the one delaying it is  mail-out4.zzzz.com, correct? Which is my client's server.  My ISP is correct then, it is nothing wrong with them?

Well, it's going to be one of those.

You would need to refer to the logs on the server for more information.

To clarify the above. All we really know from that header is the info in my first post above.

So the delay was in the connection between those two hosts.

We don't know which host caused the delay, but given that mail-out4.zzzz.com received the message in a timely manner, it was clearly functional at the time. Given that it's your clients server, your client should be able to refer to the logs on that server and see what was occurring to that message while the server was attempting to transmit it to fe.mail.megapathdsl.net.
