Delayed Email Deliveries

daskas27 asked
Last Modified: 2017-03-13
     We have one domain that sometimes sends us emails that get delayed somewhere down the line. Sometimes it is for several hours,even more on occasion. Most times it comes right through. I am trying to figure out if it us, them or a server along the way. I found a tool that analyzes the message header but I can't really translate it. Can one of you expert folks maybe take a look and pare it down to "layman's terms"?

This message example was sent at 1:20 PM EST and was received at 2:57 AM EST.

 I have attached a file that is a screen print of the analyzer results. Some info has been redacted on the images and I have "x'd" out some info from the Receiver Header.

Here is the Receiver Header:
