Other providers range from poort to excellent. My favorite e-mail service is eMailPlus offered at InternetCrusade (link follows).
After some further investigation by our engineering team we verified that the email alerts are sent on time. Therefore, we think that the delay is happening on the receiving end. Hopefully, this is just a temporary issue and it will be addressed by your email provider very soon.
Thank you for reporting this issue. Our engineering team is looking into it and we will come back to you with an update shortly. To help us better investigate, could you please let us know what email provider you are using?

I ussually get email notice in less than 10 minutes.
Also, there is no "list". You need to uncheck the email notice.
