After about a week-and-a-half, Google finished unclogging a backlog of legitimate messages its Postini spam filter trapped by mistake at the end of February.
Google finally cleaned up the queue of undelivered email early Sunday, resolving a problem it first acknowledged on Feb. 26. The company started sending out the affected messages the next morning.
This means that the last batch of erroneously quarantined email reached its destination almost 11 days after being sent, about three or four times longer than it usually takes the U.S. Postal Service to deliver First Class mail.

Wow that is a long time.  I remember when email could get lost for a bit back in the late 80s, but figured they'd sorted this all out by now 🙂
