Recently i noticed that sometimes it takes a while for paypal to do the hidden post back to my server. I wonder how many times it trys? and how often. does anybody have any ideas?

It retries 30 times between failures as follows:

1 sec, 2 sec, 4 sec, 8 sec...2 hours, 4 hours, 4 hours...

A failure is any time the merchant's web server returns something other than an HTTP 200-299 response (e.g.: "200 OK" and "204 No Content" will cause the PayPal server to stop POSTing).
