As the problem with delayed email alerts is ongoing but appears to vary in how it affects members, it would be helpful if you could participate in this poll so that the site owner can see in detail what is happening.

Thank you

Somewhere between 7 and 8. It's so hard to keep track of whether there's any missing alerts because when a delayed one comes through it can be hard to work out which post it was meant for.

thanks for setting up the poll Sparrow.

A PM sent to me today at 12.03pm, its alert arrived at 12.50pm
Last sunday the 4.28pm alert arrived at 8.35pm
Last Saturday I had alerts at 9.51am arrive at 9.52am and an alert at 9.52am arrive at 10.12am

There's nothing consistent about it.

My alert from Beate's post came with no delay, which was a pleasant change.
