Is that 8 to 12 hours for a message between the following times:

1. from the time the MTA's log records as delivering the message to the 

2. to the time logged by MM in post and smtp logs for the message going 
out to the subscribers.

Does time (2) fit with the MTA's log showing the time it got the 
outgoing message from MM? What time does the MTA show handing off the 
message to the next MTA?

If time (1) to time (2) is where the 8 to 12 hours is going, are you 
saying nothing is showing in the qfiles directory during that time?

Assume you are using MM 2.0.x; which value of x?

Which MTA?
