Why is my sent email delayed 30 seconds? Suspect DNS server.

Maybe your time stamp sources are just out of sync by 30 seconds. What are you basing this difference on? IF its a busy mail server 30 seconds isn't all that unusual is it?

Some email companies use to send emails in batches, so maybe every 5 minutes they send all emails, that were 'sent' in those last 5 minutes, or here 30 seconds. But almost no one does that anymore
gmail was a way to undo send, if the feature is enabled, where it just waits, 3 to 30 seconds, before sending the email. In that time you can hit a cancel button if you realized you've made a mistake.
Whats the domain (@applemail.com or what?), the mail client your using, are you sending the email to yourself, and anything you can tell us about your setup that might be buggered.
