My /etc/hosts file is only has the "nameserver x.x.x.x" entry.

the /var/log/maillog shows the entry right away when "mail" on the 
command line is done.
Again, this is mail originating on the the box and destination is on the 
same box.

mailq always shows 0, even doing it repeatedly.

the mail delivery  is delayed exactly 2 minutes.

I have localhost in the /etc/hosts file.

Very odd, any thoughts?
