I think it could be Yahoo. I haven’t noticed anything this week but starting in early November I noticed some list mail from this and another yahoo group being delayed by up to a day for personal delivery.

I'm the first to say Yahoo sucks, so don't think I'm defending then; I've not experienced the trouble you're having.
