I may be barking up the wrong tree here, but is your box able to do DNS
lookups?   I'm thinking it can't resolves back to a
hostname, then when running through MS/SA it waits for all the DNS
lookups (inc. RBL checks) to time out (explains the delay you note).
Then it can't find the MX for the destination address which is why mail
isn't delivered.   May or may not help.
