I sent an email out at 3.57pm, but the recipient 'received' it at 16.04pm according to the 'Recieved' Column in Outlook Express. A difference of 13 hours 53 minutes, but in fact it was instant....just the time/clock difference. How can that happen?

Welcome to TSG....

It can happen, it just depends on the route the email takes, say thru Russia, Africa, South America and other places or there might have been a server down the would have received it but could not send it until fixed, rain, snow, sand storms etc.

I have gotten an email that took almost 6 months to get to me, you do not have anything to worry about and there is absolutely nothing that can be done to fix it.

In fact I gave the wrong times, but your explanation is fine....many thanks
