I've seen responses to messages days before the message being responded to.
However, it is not just this list. So, I suspect part, maybe a major part,
of the problem is my ISP.
I am getting more and more messages out of sequence -- some up to three
days. For example, I will see some replies long before I see the beginning
of the thread, or earlier replies.
Now I believe that Email is still a "store and forward" technology and when
a server doesn't get through it often holds the message for some time before
trying again. So, I think I know what is happening, but not where -- as
different messages take different routes from and to the same ISPs.
However, I was wondering if other folk were experiencing an increase in the
same type of "messages out of sequence." If not, I suspect that my ISP
(USIT / OneMain / EarthLink) may be having more congestion than its hardware
and connection to the "net" itself can handle -- albeit the dial-in modem
access is doing OK on the no-busy signal or dropped lines problems they were
Any experts out there have any advise? Time to switch ISPs?
