I'm occasionally getting gmail responses showing up half a day to a full day later; Are others here experiencing this?

These are business responses and so time is important.

In the past I used a "stand alone" email server, paid annual dues, but with a large use base it was eventually hacked so bad I had to close it out. I do run alternate emails for personal, such as family and advertising.

Gmail is the only site I'm seeing this happen once or twice a month.
Anyone else?

Yes. In fact, it was happening to me so badly a couple of years back that I told everyone to stop emailing me at my gmail account.

Slowly, I went back to it and it was working well until maybe a week or so ago...and now here we are again with emails bouncing back to their start point or me not getting messages until a day or two later. Ridiculous. I am really starting to hate gmail.

You should call them and have them run a trace on the emails. I've had issues and they were very prompt and resolved it within a day or two.

And..........what was "resolved"? I expect a lot of sites to be slow on Saturday and down on Sunday for service; that's been going on a lot. This seems to be random and affects different gmails. But there are other, less obvious reasons to bail on gmail; too many to approach here.

I had some emails that were taking time to be sent out. I called them and they determined it a problem with the receiver's email server. They worked with the receiver's admins to fix it. It was painless on my end.

Gmail works well for us. I have no reason to leave.

I am having the same thing sending emails from my hotmail acct for the last few weeks. I get this bounce back that says "Warning (if that isn't scary enough) This Email Will Be Delayed". Sometimes it gets through and other times they don't. I don't send a lot of emails but almost had the feeling that someone was there on the other end who had to read them first before sending them on? Weird.
