[ic] remove sendmail 5-sec pause?

Hi --

I'm trying to shave seconds off final order processing on a busy site. 
I've found that, about one in ten times, etc/mail_receipt takes an 
extra five seconds to run. Debugging messages narrow down the extra 
time to the point of sending the email:

[email to="[scratch to_email], __MAIL_RECEIPT_CC__"
         subject="__COMPANY__ Order #[value mv_order_number]: [scratch 
         from=|"__COMPANY__ Order Confirmation" <orders at company.com>| ]
... email contents ...
# pause comes after this
#but before this

I'm not sure exactly what config values apply here, but I believe we 
have all defaults set as far as sending mail goes. So -- how can I kill 
this pause? Is it something changing sendmail options could fix? Or is 
it possible to have IC execution continue without waiting for the 
results of the [email] tag?

In case it matters, we're running IC 5.2. Thanks for your help.
