e-mail transit time


How many hours or days would you have to wait to receive a sent e-mail before you can reasonably say it will never come?

Depends upon the delivery servers
Most deliver within an hour or so these days
Unless there are server/router problems
They usually try to resend for 3 days before they give up

e-mail transit time


It's been six hours and, so far, nothing from his account and nothing received in his account from me.

Yet, he's able to send and receive between his two Yahoo addresses and able to send to the Yahoo online chat help address.

I guess I'll wait till 24 hours and see if anything improves.
