We've been playing with some of the backoff parameters with postfix on to try and tune it a bit more.  There is also not enough
process space on the machine to run enough mail delivery daemons to
push the mail through as fast as everyone would like.  Some of this
problem lies with the architecture of postfix but also the
machine is slightly underpowered for what we want to do.

Don't even get me started on mailman's handling of bounce messages.  (-:
