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!!!!

As a matter of fact I am sending this from my Yahoo account since the email I 
sent to the Exchange List is still in the queue with a submission date of 
10/20/2003.  :-)
