Random thoughts:

Maybe not, do the math and find that it takes about 5 minutes to send a
megabyte or so over a dialup link.  If balsa's configured to talk with a
remote smtp server instaed of localhost, that would account for it.

My favorite timeouts are DNS, is reverse DNS correct for your box?  5
minutes is a long time for DNS though.

Perhaps the problem is in the sending mail reporting dialog?  Maybe it's
not always up-to-date on what's going on with the smtp dialog.  At what
point does the pause occur?
