My delayed (hours) email problem seems to have been rectified as of about 2-3 weeks ago.
The second problem that developed about two weeks ago was that every day or so, I would get a message saying my email accounts (4 of them) were not valid. I then had to go in to the email settings and revalidate all my accounts. The BB address was not affected.
Then, yesterday, I noticed I wasn't getting any pop emails forwarded to the BB. I had to once again go into the email settings on the BB and send my service books again. Since I did that, my emails are coming through with the usual 2-5 min delay from my aol account.
I should also mention that earlier this week, one of my aol email accounts was not coming up as a source for me to send emails from the BB. Even though it was in my email settings as validated. I had to delete that account and then re-enter it as a new account.
Very strange. I can't wait and see what problems next week brings!
