Yes, every attempt to send a new email failed on the initial connection. It would eventually 
succeed after several retries but that could take an hour or more.

In the case of the example for which I showed results there are 4 IP addresses for 
mail.gridhost.co.uk so there were 4 failures for the initial attempt to connect and 4 more for 
each retry.

When a connection was finally made it was with the first IP tried for that attempt but I don't 
know if this was the case for every successful connection.
