           Summary: Mailing takes forever to forward emails

For the last month or so, the mailing lists have taken quite some time to
forward emails.  An email sent to a list takes several hours before being sent
to it's subscribers.  It seems to hang up, although the headers say otherwise. 
The emails sent date and time seem to match the day and time of when it was
supposed to be sent, but the received time is usually hours, sometimes days,
after it being sent apparently.  I have checked my email client, and it doesn't
seem to be the issue as all the other emails are received almost

My email client logs the date and time it's send, supposedly, and the date and
time it was received.  (EST)

Here are some examples of emails from mailing lists:

The list seems to hangup during sending at some point making it really hard to
follow discussions properly.  Note that I have redacted a few things from the
subject headers for privacy.
