Massive queue buildup

Built my first Mailscanner / Postfix box on Friday due to a Sendmail  
meltdown last week-- was forced to throw this box into production early.

It ran fine over the weekend, but today there's a massive queue  
buildup when I run an mqueue-- 10K so far and building.

Any idea where to look to sort out where it's coming from?

It's possible the box itself is overloaded, 2 2.4 ghz procs, with a  
load average of around 13.

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
