...the time my email reaches the addressee from the time I click on .

I am emailing friends in Australia, Philippines and Japan and I would like to know what is a conservative/average time estimate when my email gets to their Inbox. Thanks!

Nearly immediately.

Try it between two of your own email accounts if you have them.

Between two hotmail accounts, almost immediately. But what if it routes to different servers ????
Link Posted: 5/16/2002 7:09:19 AM EDT
Still the nearly instant.

riddler, you've got mail

It depends on a lot of different things.  It could be instantly, or it could take a day or so.  If everything is working correctly between you two, then it should get there almost instantly.

you sent it 11:06 received it 10:11 or 11:11 EST.

Check this out:

go to -> [url]http://www.time.gov/timezone.cgi?Central/d/-6/java[/url]

I will send you an email with the official US time (CST) when I click on from that page and you tell me when you receive it (official US time).
