Hi All,

I am encountering a strange problem that, at first blush, didn't seem bad
but now it is starting to affect our sending of mail. I have noticed over
the last couple of days that I would get a "build-up" of email from
Postmaster being sent out as "Delivery Status Notification (Failure)". The
"Date of Submission" of these would be 50 days in the past. Now, today, we
are having some (most ARE being sent) of our "real" email that are in the
queues and are not being delivered.... Reason is "Connection was dropped
by the Remote Host" ... although there is one that "Unable to Bind to the
Destination Server in DNS". The destination domains of these emails are
very common ones that we send to all the time. ALL of these emails have a
"Date of Submission" of 8/20/2003..... 50 days in the past. The date in
the mail server is today. HELP!!!!
