There's virtually no technical information here.  You'd have to 
provide a lot more details before we'd be likely to be able to 
provide any assistance.  Right now, all we can say is that it does 
appear you have a problem.

At the very least, I suggest you read all of the FAQ entries that 
mention the keywords "performance" and "sendmail".
