I tried it and I see similar delays: Complicated theory: it's an anti-spam trick known as early talker. Spamware tends to blast stuff out as soon as it connects, so if you delay the banner message and the client sends HELO/EHLO before you've sent the banner, you know it's a someone you don't want to hear from. Simple theory: there are similar delays after EHLO and MAIL FROM, so they seem to be severly overloaded. Don't take it personally. That's why your mail server can do a zillion connections at once.
