Starting a few weeks ago, I noticed that it was taking dreamhost up to 4.5 hours to deliver mail that was sent to my domain and forwarded to gmail. I did my research and recognized all the issues, I sent in a trouble ticket and dreamhost proved to me that it was google's issue. I contacted google support and sent in a prayer (they don't really communicate with users who aren't paid). I changed my forwarding from gmail to apple and I noticed in the last two weeks that at peak times durning the day dreamhost's mail servers slow down by up to 90 minutes of delay. I'm just forwarding a message, no muss no fuss. Dreamhosts reply to my support issues were:
