Just lately in the past few days exchange has become very slow to send out mail, even the internal ones. If you send yourself a test message it can take up to 12 minutes to arrive, whereas it was almost instant before.

Is there anything in particular that would cause this?

Use perfmon to check the database, add logical disk/Avg reads, Avg writes. and also for latency. All should be beow 20-40 ms, if its constantly touching 100 ms. Its a Disk problem

Check the SMTP connectors and find out where the messages are delayed, if its delayed for directory lookup it could be a GC\DC issue. Check for any errors in Eventlog.

Check database size. Exchange version ????, how many EX servers, AD version, Hw many sites ???

the only error in the event log was:

Event ID: 9671 - MSExchangeIS
User has exceeded the allowed maximum number of simultaneous registrations for MAPI notifications.
The configured maximum number of event notification registrations is 8.

I also took a look at the performance and the only one that was higher was for memory (pages/sec). The ones that you had mentioned all fell within the normal ranges.
Ocasionally the pages/sec would have a spike in it that would send it up to something like 20, but would usually fall afterwards to about an average of 2.

Too many email signature changes to deal with?

Are you constantly being asked to update your organization's email signatures? Do they take up too much of your time? Wouldn't you love to be able to manage all signatures from one central location, easily design them and deploy them quickly to users. Well, you can!

there was only one thing in the queue. There doesn't seem to be anything blocking it up or I would probably see a little more in there I would think...

In the system manager queue you can see everything is green and happy and there doesn't seem to be anything that shows a problem. I'm starting to wonder if the database is somehow becoming corrupt or something...

Okay, I spent the morning running the disk defragmenter about 4 times in a row and after that everything was working perfectly.

I didn't think that would have an effect on Exchange, but there you go.

Thanks for the help....
