duplicate emails being generated from outbound mailscanner queue

ITNT Banner CampaignI have an intermittent problem with my Mailscanner at 
the moment with emails larger than 2mb.  The mail will sit in the outbound 
queue and Mailscanner will continually attempt to deliver the email without 
success, getting a deferred timeout error.  On the receiving server however 
the mail is accepted each time and delivered to the users mailbox creating a 
duplicate mail at each attempt until the email is deleted from the 
Mailscanner queue.  Both servers are on the same lan and subnet.

I am running;
Mandriva 2006
MailScanner 4.57.6
sendmail 8.13.4
clamav 0.87

This server is delivering to a Mandrake 10.1 server with sendmail 8.13.1

How can I sort this problem out?
