Hmmm... if you change the update cron job to run at quarter past the hour,
does the delay move with it?

15 minutes sounds like about the right amount of time for a TCP connection
to time out. If that's happening during the update, mailscanner will not
be processing for 15 minutes while the update is waiting to time out.
