FWIW, in the header of every message you receive from the list is sufficient information to determine exactly the route (among MTAs) that the message took from Harvard's server to your inbox, including how much time elapsed during each leg of the journey. If you don't see these headers, look for a "Show Long Headers" option (or something similar) in your email client, or inspect the raw content of the message itself. This will tell you exactly where the delay(s) (if any) were. If you see delays from the time the message left Harvard and the time you received it, then, as Marcello said, there's really nothing he can do about it.

I certainly sympathize with those who may be suffering delays in the time it takes to receive messages from the list. Perhaps the best (and easiest) option if you are experiencing such problems is to try subscribing from an account on a different server (e.g., you might try subscribing from a gmail account, for example). This solution is much less awkward than it used to be, as many email clients now make it very easy to manage multiple email addresses simultaneously.
