The mail transfer agent at erlang.org is often rather busy since every
post has to be delivered to a few thousand addresses, and often some
destination MTAs are down. So even for a no-problem destination
it might take a few hours to get the post out.

Pick some random posts, expand the headers, and watch the Received:
headers to see when the post is first received by
morgoth.cslab.ericsson.net and compare it to when it after that
is first received from morgoth.cslab.ericsson.net by the next MTA.
I normally get a 10..30 min delay.
