More Mail Issues

     After rebooting ultra7 this morning, some servers which have NFS
dependencies on it stopped talking properly (others continued to function ok).

     The result of this is that some incoming mail between 10:10 - 11:37 PDT
on August 11, may have been mishandled.  The expected behavior is that it would
have been delayed as the server was returning a transient error to the sending
server which should just cause it to queue and retry later; but in at least one
case I've discovered improper behavior on the part of a server running an old
version of sendmail; so this may perhaps impact others as well.
