Mail Delay




     I did find an issue with ultra6, one of the incoming servers.  For reasons
unknown, the virtual memory system was killing sendmail even though there was
ample free memory.

     I do not know what caused it to get into this state, I did a bit of
snooping around but could not find the cause.

     It behaved normally after a reboot.  Other servers were operating normally
and did not have a significant backlog.  A properly behaving SMTP client on the
sending end should have tried ultra5 if this server timed out.
