|delay receiving email

We use LS2004 (trial edition) which is set to check our ISP mailbox every 7 minutes using POP3 collection (not via SMTP). Our Outlook Express clients (3 PCs) are set to check their LS mailboxes every 5 minutes.
LS retrieves messages and then the Outlook Express clients retrieve these messages from LS first thing in the morning, but thereafter message distribution to the OE clients is very haphazard (sometimes never) and can often take over 2 hours, even though in theory the max delay should be approx 12 minutes.
This happens with all messages: 'safe' messages and spam (we have spam filter set to remove messages with dodgy attachments such as pif, com, vbs, etc). Bayesian antispam is turned off.
We also had same problem with LS2003 (trial version).
Has anybody come across this problem and any solutions? At present it is looking like we will have to remove LS and try alternatives.
