By external user, I'm guessing you mean someone on the Internet. In that case, 40 to 60 minutes to receive an e-mail, while slow is not unheard of. Depends on how your traffic is being routed and how many hops its taking and how busy the internet is at the moment. It also could be a setting in Exchange that is holding external mail and only sending at a specified time interval (I remember something about that from setting up an Exchange server a couple of years ago).
