I have a 12 hour delay in receiving emails sometimes. But only on one of my accounts, on my main account everything works fine. I even tried to send myself an email from myself and it doesn't show up. Any solution?
Solved! Go to Solution.
An email’s full headers include information about how it was routed and delivered as well as information about the true sender of the email. View the full headers to find out where an email was delayed or who really sent an email with a forged address.

Use header info to investigate problems
Are you getting emails from an email address you blocked? Not sure if an email is really from who it says it is? An email sender can forge false information to make it look like the email came from a different address than it really did, but you can find the true information in the full header.
Block or filter the true email address
Now that you have the true email address you can block or filter it.
Delivery records in the full headers show when each computer received the message. The first delivery is at the bottom; the newest at the top. If you find a large time gap between delivery records, that shows which computer delayed before sending it to the next computer.
Example: "mta1682.yahoo.com" received the message from "mta2009.yahoo.com" with a delay of about 1 hour and 15 minutes.
Find delays the easy way - Use this third-party tool to parse the header. It makes the information a lot easier to read. Note that this isn't a Yahoo tool and we don't offer support for it.
I have done that and there are no delays in the raw message data. Also when I send myself an email it doesn't have an option for viewing the raw message. I know there is something more going on because if I send myself a message the only reason it wouldn't go though immediately is if there was a problem with my account.
Are you sending via yahoo.com or running your account through a third party application?
Are you noticing this delay when sending/receiving from a specific email?
It is all emails from multiple different addresses. It seems to get clogged usually around 10 am est to 7 pm est, then I will get all my emails at once and the timestamps will say the time they were supposed to be delivered.
