I don't think the problem is really with your X.400 connector itself. Have you 
checked your queue to see if there is any large messages hogging the queue. I 
have seen this happen when a single message gets corrupted and hogs the queue. 
Have you tried restarting the MTA service ? This fixes most of the queue

We have two Exchange 5.5 servers, both running Enterprise Edition, connected 
via an X400 connector. The servers are in different sites and are connected via 
a 512k WAN link. Server A is a NT Server 4 SP6a machine, Server B is a Windows 
2000 SP4 machine. We experienced very slow mail traffic between the two MTA's. 
Line utilisation was ±50%, both machines had low utilisation of hardware 
resources (HDD's, NIC's, CPU's, memory). Mtacheck did not pick up any database 

Normal flow of mail was only restored when we tried using a site connector 
between the two servers as a final test. This led us to believe that the 
problem might be X400 corruption. (Creating a second X400 connector did not 
solve the problem)
