That's the joy of e-mail -- messages you sent an hour ago might still
be in the queue, while messages that you send now may go through
immediately, even if they are to the exact same destination.
There are a lot of factors involved, and the only people who can
really help you answer the question of what is wrong and how it might
be fixed are the people who administer that system -- your ISP.
> Anyone else tried to send mails from same smtp server that your MTA uses?
If you're using a webmail system from your ISP, you don't have any
control over the MTA that is used by the webmail system.
Everything boils down to the fact that you need to talk to your ISP
and see what's going on and why, and what might be done about it.
We might be able to speculate and suggest potential alternatives
based on the speculations, but that's about as far as anyone here can
You need real answers, and the only person (or people) who can
possibly provide those answers is/are at your ISP.
