Receiving emails very late from Hotmail / outlook
Question asked by ahmed taibah - 11/7/2017 at 7:06 AM
I am receiving the emails very late i.e delay of 3 - 4 hours from Hotmail and outlook. 

I have complained outlook about this issue but they are saying everything is working fine from their side and our IP isn't Block from their end. 
There is no delay from Gmail or Yahoo or other email services.

Check mxtoolbox.com to see if you have everything setup correctly. I know that is the first place we look at for everything. If you are receiving in 3-4 hours that seems very fishy. Possible hitting a backup MX server and then delivering?

Do you have greylisting turned on?  Might be this issue, originally posted 2 years ago and "Under Consideration" as a feature request...

Greylisting will definitely do this to you.
