Hi guys/ladies,

  Good morning.
  Whenever I tried to send email to this particular domain users, I
notice the email would get stuck in the queue. Only after several
persistent "forced connections", then the email get out but after a few
hrs, it bounced back, saying "couldn't find the host".

  I check with the remote domain Exchange administrator and this was the
log entry

"Nov  1 18:44:59 sierra sendmail[17045]: jA22hpi17043:
delay=00:01:01, xdelay=00:01:00, mailer=esmtp, pri=67174, [], dsn=4.0.0, stat=Deferred:
Connection timed out with".

  Anyone could provide some troubleshooting tips?

  The server is running Exchange 2003 w/ SP1, default values.

  Thank you.

  Best regards,
  Jason Tan
