Performance problems...(SOLVED)

After loading caching DNS servers on all of our mail-relay's and changing
the sendmail queue runner to about an hour, the servers were able to catch
up. They're all running a load around 1.0-3.0 and only a few emails in the at any time.

Thanks to everyone who gave me suggestions. MailScanner is now rocking along
with no lag! :)
