Smile Qmail - receiving mail too slow


currently we're having problem with our mail system.. it seems that some of our mails, is 24hrs late..

but this is not in the case of some free webmails, like yahoo, gmail, and if we try to send a mail from these free webmails, we get it fast.. but if we tried the other mails, sometimes it took 24 hrs before we can receive it.

we have 2 vps and tried to send email from each of our vp servers but it takes sometimes before we can receive it.. even with the same network.

This my setup..

- i setup using the qmailrocks apps..
- the mail systems is hosted in a vps environment.
- we have 2 vp servers which qmailrocks apps is installed and its in the same network.

i also check the logs... these are the status of logs:

qmail-pop3d (tail output of /service/qmail-pop3d/run):
-> /home/vpopmail/bin/vchkpw qmail-pop3d Maildir 2>&1

qmail-smtp (tail output of /service/qmail-smtpd/run):
-> /usr/local/bin/tcpserver -v -R -l "$LOCAL" -x /etc/tcp.smtp.cdb -c "$MAXSMTPD" \
-u "$QMAILDUID" -g "$NOFILESGID" 0 smtp \
/var/qmail/bin/qmail-smtpd \
/home/vpopmail/bin/vchkpw /usr/bin/true 2>&1

qmail-send (tail output of /service/qmail-send/run):
-> #!/bin/sh
exec /var/qmail/rc
