Exclamation Slow response on Mandrake 8.0

Hello all,
I've just installed Linux Mandrake 8.0 on a machine, which is gonna be a local server (I just wanna practice a little networking), I've been able to install a POP3 & SMTP server, but everything about connections has a very slow response when I try it from a differenr computer ...
for example .. the server's address is, and when I try to open any kinda connection from another computer, I always have to wait for about 7 seconds for each command.
For example, if I wanna check pop3 account, or send a mail using SMTP, it's instantaneous when I do it using KMail on the server, but when I try to access the same account, wether from a Mandrake 7.0 O/S or a Win98 one, I always it always takes 7 seconds to respond.

If I open an FTP connection with the server, I have to wait for that delay between every command ! .. like :
# ftp
( 7 seconds)
then I type the username & password ..
(7 seconds )
I type dir
(7 seconds )
.. and so on !!
If I transfer files with an FTP client, I need to wait 7 seconds between each file !

Please, I need someone to help me on this.

Thank you.
