Why does some emails get delivered quickly while others take up to 4 days to receive?|
This could be due to mail quota issue.
Login to Cpanel -> Mail -> Add/Remove/Manage Accounts -> Show Disk Space Used
The default is 10 megs.
Here is a scenario:
1. Sender sends email to email@example.com with attachment of 1 megabytes
2. Mail quota for firstname.lastname@example.org is 9.5 megs out of 10 megs
3. Mail does not get delivered because it will go over mail quota but it's kept in queue for up to 4 days
4. 3 days later, the mail quota is 8.9 megs out of 10 and mail gets delivered
If the mail is small (less than 300k) then the mail gets delivered instantly.
