Email was sent from a third party notification app server more than a month ago. I received the email back then, but received the same email more than a month later. Email header has the same date the email was originally sent.
It really seems like email was sent and then being held on the email server (Groupwise) for more than a month.
Anyone have any idea about what may have caused a behavior like this?

I've experienced this before with my new ISP, in this case it was only a week. But my previous ISP had some problems and I would get e-mail that had been sent upwards of two months ago, this is why I changed ISPs. In short, it has to be a server glitch at the ISP. Perhaps someone else can elucidate on this.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Yeah, it could be your ISP. If you are using a POP email client, most will have an option to delete email from the server. You may want to look and see if that option is available and selected. That way when you get your email, it will be deleted off the server. Now, if you are using IMAP, you don't want to delete your mail off of the server.
