Slow email delivery from Gmail

As I mentioned prevously, my the email for my family’s domain ( is hosted on Google Apps. Today, I’ve seen some e-mail trickling in quite late. As I examined the headers, it looks like there are problems with delivery through the Gmail backend.

Here is the section of the headers that show the e-mail getting delayed 2 hours and 10 minutes(read from bottom to top):
Received: by with SMTP id i14cs557103qbr;

by with ESMTP id v37si1593312wah.2007.;

From the header, it shows that this email took ~2 hours and 10 minutes (from 13:04:18 PDT until 15:14:19 PDT) to be delivered from to (which are both hosts in google’s network.)

I’m not paying for this service, but if I were, I’d be complaining to Google about it.
