Normally, mail flows through the server pretty quickly, but remember:
(a) there are over 500 subscribers to the list now, and it does take
some time to process that many messages, particularly if there are
several messages sent in a short time; and (b) mail delays can occur at
other places along the way, such as your ISP -- if mail can't be
delivered on the first try for whatever reason, there's a backoff
interval between retries, so a modest length outage can turn into a
somewhat longer delay in incoming mail.
