Whilst you are waiting for the VM forum team to respond (at the weekend?), you could assist by collecting some evidence of where the delays occurred. Here is a partial trace of an email sent from NTi Corp (in New Jersey USA) to a VM address yesterday (using the mxtoolbox analyser) -
This shows that there was a delay of 30 seconds in transmission from NJ to VM’s email servers. The transatlantic cable is obviously alive and well.
It means the image is awaiting approval or has been approved but it then takes up to 20 mins to appear. I'll look now and approve it provided it does not contain any personal details like a full e-mail address. If it does I'll have to reject it and the symbol will change to a forbidden sign. You'll have to edit and repost.
