We have adjusted the batch sizes some, is that what you are referring to when you say default batch processing?  I don't think the system is overloaded, heavily used yes, but emails go through in seconds usually.  

I also saw a response from Michael Masse that said he upgraded to the newest MailScanner to resolve this. I will try this also.

True, this does sound like that kind of misconfig... Either that, or a seriously overloaded system, perhaps coupled with something that kills ms... But that is pretty unlikely.
