RE: [802SEC] 802-SEC reflector delay

Bill,  Two interesting things that I note from this: 

1.  You 2nd message actually arrived before the 1st message arrived, so service is not even FIFO.  

2.  Your 2nd message took 40 minutes just to get to IEEE.  

It looks to me like your local email server is experiencing some serious difficulties.  It's your SMTP not your KARMA !!!   :-)  

Thanx,  Buzz

I recognize that some/many/most of you may have little interest in this
topic, but I find my recent experience with my emails on "802.20
affirmation" rather curious.

As you probably know, I sent an email on the above topic Tuesday and
then resent the email on Wednesday as I had not received my copy for the
initial email from the 802-SEC reflector.  I have now received my copy
from both transmissions, but after significant delays (> 34 hours and >
13 hours).  Just for amusement, I asked Buzz Rigsbee for his copies on
the emails.  The total end to end delays for his copies were both under
7 minutes.  (The delays times were extracted from the complete email
headers.  All times were converted to GMT.)  The details are in the
following table

Any thoughts?  Maybe I have the wrong karma.



In the following table, dates are in the format YYMMDD and
times are in the format HH:MM:SS.  All event times are GMT.
