This is an error that occurs during SMTP delivery from Mailman to the
outgoing MTA. Apparently the MTA dropped the connection.

Both this and the "slowness" you reported earlier can be caused by
doing too much checking in the MTA during the incoming SMTP session.

Visit the FAQ wizard at http://www.python.org/cgi-bin/faqw-mm.py and
search for performance. Look particularly at 4.11 and for exim at 6.2.
