Found out it was a firewall issue and that is open now. though my
problem has gone from connection refused to:
Feb 27 08:22:04 web1 sendmail: j1MIj4DI065443: <...>
delay=4+19:37:00, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=esmtp, pri=22920813,
relay=bhost1.broadjam.net., dsn=4.0.0, stat=Deferred: Operation timed
out with bhost1.broadjam.net.
is there a timeout that I can set in sendmail to set a longer wait time
my flags in my rc.conf are:
sendmail_flags="-bd -q30m" # -bd is pretty mandatory.
I am in a bit of a panic because my mail queue is starting to fill up
and I need to get these messages out....
