Posting delays

#1
This afternoon I responded to a post on LE support. Later I responded to one
in TC support. The one sent to TC support has already been sent back to me
as email; the one to LE support has not yet come back.

This is really strange. Worse, it easily results in proliferation of
responses. If someone asks for help, I check whether or not someone else has
already responded, and will reply only if adequate response has not yet been
posted. Of course, "posted" to me means "posted and delivered to my
mailbox". From my observations there are several other users who do the
same. All of us are likely to respond and waste both our own time and those
of other users by replies which often are virtually identical in function.

Followup:

The message posted to LE support at 14:32 EST has not yet been returned as
of 15:55 EST, 83 min later. Other messages to other fora, including the
above OP in this thread, had long been received.

2nd followup:
As of 21:22 EST, 6 h 22 min after the email was sent to
[email protected] it still not posted. Messages I posted hours later
to other JPsoft NGs have long been posted. Does posting a message to a
specific forum by email require some user to log in into the same forum to
be "instantly emailed" back to its poster?
