Also you could try this:

Send an email from your exchange to external address like gmail.com and check the message headers to find where the delay is.

It is possible that the delay would be at the recipient at and not at your end.

Below is a link which analyze the headers and could help you

Have you got DNS Forwarders added to the Forwarders Tab of your DNS server?  You could have DNS issues.
Did your ISP cut off SMTP port 25 for you without telling you?  This is a favourite trick of some ISP's.
Check by using telnet from a command prompt to my mail server:
telnet mail.sohomail.co.uk 25
telnet 87.194.160.198 25
If you can telent via both - that means your ISP has not cut off port 25.  If you can to the IP but not the FQDN then you probably have DNS issues.

i don't see any messages in these queues
i would look at an inbound message and view the headers

the example below shows when contoso.com received the message from obsmtp.com
you could then compare that time to when it was delivered to the mailbox

Received: from smtp.contoso.com (10.1.25.101) by hub.contoso.com
 (10.1.25.142) with Microsoft SMTP Server (TLS) id 8.2.254.0; Tue, 10 Aug 2010
 15:47:29 -0400
Received: from na3sys009aog113.obsmtp.com ([74.125.149.209])  by
 smtp.contoso.com with SMTP; 10 Aug 2010 15:47:23 -0400

email received in 9 seconds is not a delay as per me

Quite possible that other recipient who complained that they are receiving emails with delay have some issue at their end.

So try to get the headers of the email which they have received with delay and check them.
