Super slow emails to myself

Why do emails with (1) or (10) photos sent to myself,  either never show up or take a few hours to show up?

I use Apple mail.

This is true whether I do this on my desktop or iOS.

Turn OFF the auto-preview feature on your Apple email, then manually open photos you want to see AFTER the message is completely displayed on screen.   Right now Spectrum email is choking on the numerous .jpg files which are all being sent at the time, along with the message text file.  It is a known issue with Apple email.
