MailScanner cron job?

I've got a Pentium 200mhz machine with 64 megs of ram and I notice that the computer gets REALLY REALLY slow from about 11am to 2pm or thereabouts. Here is an example of how bad it is...

[cparker at filter ~/public_html/reports]$ uptime
 12:29pm  up 18 days, 21:19,  1 user,  load average: 10.32, 10.39, 8.96

Isn't that rediculous?

The most email we've received in one day was approximately 490. That's oh about 0.34027 emails a minute!

Anything going on with mailscanner by default around this time that would slow it down so much?
