Can you give us an example of a mail header that demonstrates the problem. I would strongly advise that you mask the real IP addresses and email addresses before you post!
I have my own SMTP server, and it's generally very fast (bypasses ISP).
Since email is a largely a store-and-forward system, any of the servers involved could be introducing the delay. The mail headers would show how long it took to relay from incoming to outgoing for any particular server.
