PS: I sent this from my gmail account.  This will be our control value, as it too is under the Google umbrella.

It showed as a draft, even though it is set to publish immediately. Next, an "external address".

To make life easier, I've combine the results in one post.
This one from a Yahoo account.

Both Google and Yahoo took about two minutes.

About four minutes on this one.

Since the mobile post made it (to drafts, any way), I attached a picture, and tried again. The image took about twelve minutes to process. It was the first time I have been able to post an image in about six months.
