Yes, that's a long time.  If nothing has changed in your Mailman
installation, I'd guess you're looking at an issue with the SMTP server,
or possibly a network issue.  A look at your mail server logs and the
timestamp data therein should give you a finer-grained look at the
timing of SMTP events associated with Mailman's outgoing posts.

Another very useful tool for analyzing mail issues is swaks.
