The processing mode of ms should be set to batch, not queue... Look in the
conf file and you'll see.

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,...
