This is getting seriously out of hand. Adding a new mail address used to take up to about 5 hours, as opposed to the one hour the panel says. Now it can take 20 hours, as I found when I added an address at 22:48 12-08-05. 20 hrs later it was still not active. I didn't see it active until I next checked after 23hrs.
I really hope DH can do something about this.
