I would suggest putting the code out to the list.
That way others cleverer than me can comment.... :-)

however things I might suggest:

what configurations are set up in the mail server
-is it trying to perform DNS lookups of every recipient to try and act as an
anti-spam measure?
-is it expecting some authentication from you and is having to go elsewhere
to verify (LDAP etc?)
- is it runing some strange virus check before accepting mail?

I do not know much about ipswitch (WS-ftp / snmp people?), but perhaps their
technical dept can help?

I really suspect it is not a python problem.
