Huge delay delivering mail

Hi again,

For what I've seen I suspect it's sendmail2 that isn't being called... Does
this make sense?

The mail usually takes up to 10 minutes and more to be delivered (this is the
largest delay I've registered). I suppose it's when sendmail queue is flushed,
like you said...

Any tips on what might be wrong?

thank you
