Well, we waited, and waited, and waited.
A quick check of our SBS Exchange Queue showed that there were a number of e-mails in the queue. That was really strange.
So, off to the SmallBusiness SMTP connector Properties to verify that the service is set to deliver e-mail as soon as it hits the queue. It was not!
For some strange reason, the SMTP connector was set to deliver e-mail every hour! Huh? Not sure how that came about, but this is how that setting should look:

Just in case, we will go through all of the servers we updated last night and check that setting.
It will save us having to answer a support call from a client wondering why their e-mail is not flowing as it should: instantly.
There may be no direct correlation between the update and the change in the queue setup, but we know that our e-mail was flowing immediately yesterday.
