please can any one tell me what the above means ,it is on aol mail. :-S

it means that somewhere along the line something is not keeping up as a result the delay triggers a 504 error. There are as many combinations of reasons for this as fish in the sea. All you can do is make sure your own system is configured oroperly and maybe try running with the antivirus/firewall disabled and see if that fixes it.

The problem(s) are usually with the server though.
