Your Internet Consultant - The FAQs of Life Online

4.9. I got a message saying my message can't be delivered for three days. What should I do?

Lots of strange things happen in the great lottery of Internet mail. En route from your host to its destination, your mail might pass through several other computers, over gateways, and around roadblocks. Once in a rare while you'll receive an automated message saying your mail can't be delivered for a certain amount of time. There's nothing you can do but wait. Your mail will go through eventually. Don't fret: it will still probably get there faster than "snail mail" would.
