Since Microsoft clearly doesn't give a damn about the 360 servers, I've found a fairly simple solution to getting messages to go through on time on the console.

When you think you should be getting a new message/invite, simply delete an old message and the new one will instantly show up. It's annoying for people that like to keep their inbox clean but it might be better to keep all your old messages so you when think a message isn't going through you can delete an old one to find out.

Another thing I've noticed was between certain profiles I was able to get messages to go through consistently on time. This profile that was getting messages on time happened to be one I haven't used in a year so I'm thinking this delayed message thing is a case of the 360 servers internal inbox filling up for people since when the Xbox One came out all messages are saved now no matter if you delete it off your 360 console or not.

I haven't done a ton of testing but so far this seemed to fix things at least temporarily.

Official Xbox Support Twitter account says 'we have not seen any other reports of this' when I have direct messages from them regarding this spanning a good 5 months. It feels like ground hogs day every time I contact them about the delayed messages. Always have to start from scratch and go through the same basic troubleshooting and be treated as if this is a unique problem 100% on my end.

Thank you for this information. I'm usually the kind of person like you mentioned who likes to keep their messages area clean, but I'll make it a point from now on to keep a spare message or two specifically for this.
