Mail Still Impacted

The client mail server is still being beaten by bounces from misconfigured sites that, instead of rejecting mail they will not deliver up front, queue it and bounce it later.

This ran the server out of spool space sometime early this morning and as a result, some mail that couldn’t be immediately delivered, may have been lost.

Sites where immediate delivery may not have been possible tended to be large sites like Yahoo or Google which throttle the rate at which they will accept incoming mail.
