Reply notifications seem delayed

I frequent 3 sites forums and blogs that will send reply notifications that are all hosted on dreamhost including my own. I doubt it could be one server hosting them, so it prob has something to do with a server that handles such things.

Seems that since monday the notifications have been delayed by hours on all of them.

I have seen this happen in the past before and it usually rectifies itself. just wondering if anyone else has been noticing this happening as well.

I use gmail which might be the problem as well so kinda looking to narrow it down. Might send off a support request later if it keeps up.

BTW I fricking love dreamhost.

may the forces of evil become confused on the way to your house.
