MAIL QUEUE TOO LONG AND HIGH LOAD

Explain your setup... Is the mail delivered on the same box that
MailScanner is on? Is MailScanner serving just as a mail gateway?
IIRC, it will effect delivery retries on outbound mail too, so even if
you don't have greylisting enabled it will cause issues with somebody
who does. ie:
You have an outbound message, sent to mail.example.tld.
mail.example.tld rejects the message, due to greylist. it greylists the
IP for 10 minutes.
Your queue expires after 2 minutes, and never gets resubmitted.
