Provided the listserver is behaving, and it usually is, such delays are
due to your mail being spooled one or more times at intermediate 'hops'.
If you check the headers you should be able to figure out where and for
how long. The routing cannot be controlled but you can protest to the
admin of the offending mailservers.
At busy times it may take up to an hour or so to distribute from the
listserver. It serves other lists as well, but has to distribute around
30,000 mails from this one each day (and I get all the bounces ;-/ )
