Incredible delay between posting and e-mail notifications. RRS feed

  • Question

  • This has been an issue here for years, it doesn't really upset me but can be very annoying when one has several very active threads on the go.

    I just got a load (7) e-mails a few minutes ago, for this thread.

    Today is the 12th July, but the change to the thread all took place on or before the 5th July !!

    This is very common, I see it all the time, sometimes an e-mail notification is timely, but most of the time they are not.

    When one is busy it can seem like a thread has just seen a flurry of activity, when in reality it's dead and all the chatting took place days/weeks ago.


    PS: My e-mail is MS Hotmail and I don't generally see any delays with other stuff I do.
