Why the internal network delays, Gmail?

Hi Mel, There's another mailing list called 'mailop' which is probably 
more appropriate for email related problems, than NANOG.

And in response to Nate:

Useful to know, but John is right - as cited, working through Google's 
support process, got somewhere.
Further exchanges on NANOG are probably inappropriate.  A group like 
'mailop' probably has a higher care factor, however.

(I would also note that email delays that are demonstratably outside of 
your network (as headers will show) are very easily painted as something 
beyond your control, and the nature of email is very much 'best effort', 
so anyone playing the blame game needs a reality check. Just because 
email exchanges 'are often' near-instantaneous, does not mean they 
always will be.)

So Nate's question is totally appropriate for this list. I know I've solved several problems by airing them here and getting insight from other list members.
