When some e-mail posts that I sent failed to appear here on QPORIT, I queried Blogger support and got the following message:

There is currently a problem with Mail-to-Blogger which causes posting by email to be unreliable for some secret words but not others. We are looking into this issue further and we apologize for any inconvenience it may have caused.

(Note that there are several items about mail-to-blogger listed in Blogger's HELP/STATUS which mention problems with stability and delays.)

As a test, I sent some posts by e-mail to see if and when they would arrive. (Of five posts I sent on 2/10 and 2/11, two have arrived so far, the other three have not appeared -- at least, not yet.) This post (edited to add comments but stamped at the time it was first posted by Blogger) was sent from Hotmail with a copy to an address at AOL.

The time the copy arrived at AOL is shown below:
--- EST: 2/11/05 02:03 PM
The time it was posted by Blogger is shown below:
--- EST: 2/13/05 10:24 PM
That is, it arrived and was posted about 2 days and 8 hours after it was sent.
