chipperjones -> read reply took nearly 24 hours to receive? (29.Jul.2009 9:18:50 PM)

user was having problems sending email to a certain domain, so I had them send email with Receive and Read receipts to someone at that domain.

it appears the person at the other company replied to the email monday at 1:30 pm, but we didnt receive the receipt until 11:30 am tuesday morning.

so I look at the header of the email that we finally received, but I am having trouble wrapping my head around the times on this header.

I thought you were supposed to read these from the bottom up, but the bottom time is 15:35 UTC on the 29th, then goes to 13:55 on the 28th, to 14:01 on the 29th, then 11:35 on the 29th (when we received it).

how can I decipher this? just trying to verify if the issue was on our end on theirs (I really hope theirs)



here is the header:

In determining whether the delay is being introduced by your systems, the important information in the header begins at the point the message reached a system under your control.

If that's the time your system claims to have received the message, how is it that you also said?

Is all of that information correct?  If so, you are saying the user received the message before your server did.  Are the clocks on your systems set correctly?
