Qmail and Plesk on a Linux web server.

Qmail has been resending my email up to 20 times in some cases.

It has been recommended that I increase the value associated with timeoutconnect, timeoutremote & timeoutsmtpd.  I have done that in increments of 1,000.  All three currently have a value of 10,000 and the problem still persists.

Does anyone have any other ideas to solve this?

What do the mail logs say? You might have a permissions problem with the mail directories. Or you may have a problem with the delivery agent. Your mail logs should be revealing some sort of error.
