If this is true, then why do e-mails that I wrote at 9:00 A.M. arrive showing
that they were written several hours (as much as six in some cases) after the
actual time that I posted them?
In fact, in some cases the "time stamp" has been off by over a day!

I suspect it has something to do with electronic traffic, which servers are busy
or down, etc.
