	Mailman 2.1 doesn't use cron.  It has qrunner jobs that are under 
the control of mailmanctl, which runs them whenever they are needed.

	Well, "delay=1" means that the message spent anywhere up to an 
entire whole second (or there abouts) between when it come into the 
system and when it was accepted by the remote end.  Since one second 
is the resolution of the clock that is used for reporting this data, 
you probably won't ever see much of anything shorter.

	A "delay=2" means that the message spent at least an entire whole 
second in the system, and closer to two entire seconds.

	You should read the postfix documentation to get this kind of 
information, since this mailing list is for supporting Mailman, not

	Complain to the people at sbcglobal.  Give them this log 
information and ask them to find out what happened to this message. 
No one else is going to be able to answer this question, since they 
would need access to the internal log data at sbcglobal.
