Hi Kai,

Thanks for your reply.  Yes, that one was a connection to itself...but 
the msg remains when connecting from a client.  My last post must have 
crossed with yours.
It now appears to be nothing more than a server timeout issue which is 
very strange as this server's load averages are /always/ < .10. 

I'm not sure what might have changed since the reboot on Sunday 
morning....am now looking at what is or is not running against the 
snapshot taken on Friday night.
Do you think it's wise to replace the sendmail.cf and sendmail.mc files 
from the snapshot (after backing them up, of course)?
