A customer is currently having delays - sometimes up to 24hrs, sending and receiving
emails. The OS is XP Pro with Outlook Express. The email accounts are pop3 and the incoming
and outgoing servers are supplied by different people. They have been on to them both
and as far as they are concerned there are no issues with either. Messages seem to be being delivered ok when being sent to email domains other than their own company, but when an an email is sent from one colleague to another there can be a long delay until the message is eventually received. The Isp which also supplies the outgoing Smtp server have said it could be our own mail server that is purged and error logs are preventing the messages from being sent straight away. This is nothing to do with them but this is what they have said. To be honest I am not really sure what they mean.
