Manual intervention will be taken to verify whether this is a glitch.

Okay, but what's to be done when 4 hours happens? Depending on where the
e-mail originates, 4 hours might happen at any time even though your
servers and network(s) are in perfect order.

SMTP allows for delayed retries, e.g., see CHGSMTPA RTYMIN() RTYDAY()
RTYHOUR(); perfectly normal. A momentary glitch along the path, quite
possibly outside your network, can put any given e-mail into a retry
status. In the meantime, all your stuff is running fine. So what'll be
triggered for a 'failure', especially since such a delay probably only
involves the specific path taken by the specific e-mail?

Just trying to cover bases.
