an email that downloaded very slowly

A puzzle that I hope someone can solve - a very big email took so long that it stuck because the ISP kept disconnecting and my friend eventually had to open it via webmail.
It turned out to be only a single A4 page letter. Th bloated size (3MB)seemed to be caused by the logos of "Investors in people", etc , etc that it contained.
When he forwarded it to me I looked at Properties, etc and found that the Details started with the following:
X-EMS: wait 10s
X-EMS: wait 20s
X-EMS: wait 30s
X-EMS: wait 40s
X-EMS: wait 50s
X-EMS: wait 60s
X-EMS: wait 70s
X-EMS: wait 80s
X-EMS: wait 90s
X-EMS: wait 100s
X-EMS: wait 110s
X-EMS: wait 120s
and then the rest of tyhe info was as usual:
Return-Path: [email protected]>
X-Original-To: ; etc, etc.

I've never seen the "X-EMS...etc" lines before.
Can anyone excplain what this bit means, please?
