Recently, I had an inquiry regarding delayed emails. I want to address the issue in depth. But first, I want to give everyone a simple but thorough explanation of the hardware components that make up the Internet.
Here is a fairly complete “parts list” of the Internet hardware:
- Cable (wire)
- Fiber Optic Cable
- Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexers (Fiber Optic related)
- Coaxial Cable
- DNS Servers
- Mail Servers
- Authentication Servers
- Web Servers
- Terminals (Connectors)
All the hardware components are connected together to form the Internet. How they are connected into paths and how information is sent along those paths is a whole different subject which we won’t be addressing here.
See the next post for our answer regarding delayed emails. Questions or comments? Feel free to use the comment section below.
