error: (doesn't have much there)

Oct 23 20:50:42 2006 mailmanctl(13642): The master qrunner lock could
not be acquired because it appears as if another
master qrunner is already running.
I was restarting mailman..

Oct 23 20:50:42 2006 mailmanctl(13642):
Oct 23 20:59:39 2006 (13656) Cannot connect to SMTP server localhost
on port smtp
Oct 24 08:36:36 2006 (18268) Cannot connect to SMTP server localhost
on port smtp
not sure about these 2 other than, my postfix is working since i can
send and receive emails. I assume it had to be somewhat connected with
the timeout in previous error.
