    Hi Eric, Could you please help me remedy a problem with notification of e-mail and PMs? My notifications arrive very much after the fact, sometimes a day or even two after I have read and deleted the subject matter. Is there anything I can do to fix this?
    Thanks for your time, John W.

    I just sent myself a PM (sad isn't it ;)) to see how long the email notification took. It was there instantly. I use Yahoo mail.

    From what I have seen, often the delay is on your end. If your email system is busy, it will slow down the receipt time of your email. It can only process a certain number at a time and the notification may get put on a "waiting list". When it gets to the front of the line, it is sent. This can take some time depending on the work load of your email system.
