Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

The reply below was posted by me from work at about lunchtime today,
yet it appeared on the list only a few minutes ago (7-8 hours later).
I have observed the same behaviour before, sometimes leading to a
repost from me. Why is this happening (the delay in appearance of my
posts when done from my mail account at work)?
