Would dns timeouts affect mailq?  My dns is setup correctly locally, which is
where I was trying to send my tests, to my local mailhub.  What is also
interesting is that it has started working again at a normal speed, without any
changes or restarts.  It was slow over config changes, make world, and
reboots.  But became slow, then became normal just by sitting idle.  I have a
p4 with HT and an SMP/HT kernel.  Could that have anything to do with it?
