Bill, it may seem counterintuitive but it's perfectly legitimate for
mail to arrive out of order. There are no guarantees, even for the
ordering of messages sent between the same two addresses.

That said, it's certainly not *usual*, so something seems to be going
on, but knowing exactly what means tracing the mail's path via its
headers. Take a look at the detailed header info of some delayed
messages (especially the timestamps) and you'll probably be able to
identify where the blockage is occurring.
