I'm not sure. When I look at the log, I see:
Apr 8 09:58:29 quantum postgrey: delayed 768 seconds:
e.edu, from=security at paypal.com, to=randy at linuxfromscratch.org
but I don't think you really want to receive that one. :)
I also see
Apr 7 23:51:26 quantum postgrey: delayed 7717 seconds:
client=qsrv02sl.mx.bigpond.com, from=noreply at linuxfromscratch.org,
to=randy at linuxfromscratch.org
Which doesn't look right either.
I don't see anything *from* you that has been delayed, but it would be
easy to miss something.
I'll continue to investigate.
