When you say delayed, is it delayed to get to your or delays in sending mail on your computer?

The ISC documents this:

Email Worms Bog Down ISPs
http://www.incidents.org/diary.php?date=2004-06-17

The ISC has received reports of several major ISPs suffering delays in the delivery of email due to a recent surge in worm activity. The specific worms referenced are Sober.H/Ascetic.A and Erkez/Zafi.B. You may remember Sober.H as being the source of large amounts of German-language political spam ( as reported here: http://isc.incidents.org/diary.php?date=2004-06-11 ). The volume of email created by these two worms beginning late last week slowed many mail servers to a crawl, creating a backlog of undelivered (but not undeliverable) mail. As the tide of email created by these two worms begins to recede, queued mail should be delivered and delivery times should return to normal.
