Your logs should tell you more.

If its sendmail maybe set the max children higher? (or similar on
others), depends on the load of your machine.

Subject: [Mailman-Users] SMTP server overloaded


I had a situation where the SMTP server got overloaded and failed to
connections from Mailman.

What happens to the mail Mailman tried to deliver to the SMTP server?

Does Mailman retry to deliver it later, or is it lost?

Both the SMTP server and Mailman are on the same machine.
