It doesn't matter much, but where can this delay be observed? Contrary
to what many people think, email is _not_ instant messaging. Maybe GMX
de-prioritises non-paying customers? My company certainly does. It's
quite typical of freemium services.

Well, I was impatiently waiting for my own sent email to appear, and it
was slower than Telefónica by minutes. I did not check with Gmail.

I was going to consider being a paying customer, but they never offered
to me anything else but the free service. I was unable to find anywhere
on their page "pay service", and find out what the differences are.

And as they block my IP based on stupid spamhouse classification, it is
clear I can not use them. Telefónica is often listed, yet Gmail never
blocks me because of that. If I switch to them and they block me, I can
not even email them! Absurd.

It is absurd to ban authenticated clients based on spammer lists.
