I've been seeing the same thing here and I'm just across the border.

Often I seem to receive replies before the original thread. At first I thought I’d inadvertently changed sort orders in outlook. But here is an example for the curious:

The thread: Finally a Little Recognition !! (All Times I assume are my local time.)


2) David Topete replies 9:53, I receive 9:54

3) Doug Mayer replies 9:54, I receive 10:03

1) Stan Caldwell sends original message 9:49, I receive 10:23


This neither reflects the first in first out (FIFO) operation of a queue, nor the last in first out (LIFO) operation of a stack. Something blocked and delayed the original message in this direction, but obviously not to those that replied. Curious!
