Of course email is not 100% reliable.  There can be congestion and
queuing delays for many reasons, and sometimes it's quite random.
Also there might be corporate email filtering magic that doesn't work
as well as you might like.  There is one mailing list where I receive
email from other members just fine, but anything I post myself comes
back to me with a "potentially fraudulent sender" warning.  :-P

Also, a couple of years ago our corporate IT implemented a global spam
filter that randomly caught LLVM emails, unfortunately it also failed
to notify anyone that it had intercepted something.  I noticed because
I saw threads where someone replied to a message I had not received.
We eventually persuaded IT to fix the broken notifications, after which
I could start retraining the filter.  It works much better now.

I received these about 30 minutes ago.
