    Well Exim is the default MTA provided my cpanel and we have been using it without any problems since long now. It must be some thing on your server that is causing this delay. You should check your mail queue and also the logs incase any one is spoofing around on your server, there are many thread in this forums that might help you.

    Go on, have a guess
    Indeed. Exim is the only MTA that you can use with cPanel. If you're having slow mail delivery you most likely have either one of a few problems:

    1. As Murtaza_t says, you have an excessively large mail queue, in which case you need to investigate why

    2. Linked to 1., make sure no accounts are using :blackhole: in /etc/valiases/* and if they are change them to :fail:

    3. You have a spammer on your server either directly via an account or indirectly through a compromised web script

    4. Lastly, check your server resource usage and ensure that you're not overloading the server
