I'm getting emails a day late as well. 
What some of us try to do is send to a few and also the amsat-FL. Especially when there is a net and we are trying to figure out who's running the net.

The  Florida AMSAT net will be carried in the AMSAT EchoLink conference
tonight, January 28th at 1930 local time, EchoLink node number is 101377.
For now, RF users can use the K4ZPZ repeater in the Orlando area, and the
KI4SWB repeater in Melbourne. There may be other repeaters linked in as
well. EchoLink users can use the conference, either as PC client or
repeater/link to access the net.

You subscribe to AMSAT-Florida in "digest" mode. That means the system gathers up the day's messages and sends them all in a bunch at midnight (Pacific Time, since that's where the amsat.org server is located). This mode is intended to reduce the burden of sorting through the messages on a high-traffic mailing list. For an extremely low-traffic mailing list like AMSAT-Florida, you'd probably be happier with digest mode turned off. You can control digest mode (and certain other configuration items) for your subscription by following the link at the bottom of every message, http://amsat.org/mailman/listinfo/amsat-florida. Go to the bottom of that page, fill in your email address, and click on the "Unsubscribe or edit options" button.

The log shows that your digest for yesterday was sent at 12:01AM, which would be 3:01AM in your timezone. I would bet that's when you received it, not 12 hours later at 3:01PM.
