This could be caused by a DNS bottleneck.  I would recommend you setup a
caching-only nameserver on your Mailman box and see if that helps.  Remember
to modify /etc/resolv.conf to add a line at the top:

Subject: [Mailman-Users] Mailman / Sendmail horribly slow
performance..suggestions please?!?

I'm currently running mailman-2.0.13-1 eith sendmail-8.11.6-25.72.  Posts 
are processed very fast, but delivery is more than slow.  It takes 1-2 
minutes per post to delivery mail.  Evaluating what is going on in the 
queue is a little more than cumbersome.  Over the course of 3-4 days mails 
have been piling up in the qfiles directory to the tune of 4000 mails and 
waiting.  There are mails 3 days old waiting to go out.  I'm looking for 
ways to evaluate what is in the queue, why it's in the queue, and how to 
tell qrunner to report more information on what it's thinking.  Like 
perhaps the msgid of the email it's trying to process at this time.

Thank You,
