Whoa. Just got a reply from DH support, maybe 1:45 after I first submitted my request. That's a heck of a lot better than they've been doing lately. It's a shame the answer isn't more satisfying, though. But it's at least good to have something to report back to the troops.

[i]The mailing list server is doing its monthly sending of membership reminders for all members of all lists, so it has a large queue that it has to churn through. It also looks like its going slower than it should, so while this is normally not an issue, it is now. Our admins are looking into the issue further. The messages are indeed being saved and will be sent as soon as it gets to them. It should catch up overnight.
Sorry for the inconvenience. Let me know if you have further questions.[/i]
