linux - not all messages removed from queue


I am getting this in my maillog:
Code:
 38791 bytes transferred
 34 messages sent
 17 messages removed from queue
Seems a lot of messages aren't being delivered. Now, I had a quick scan through the logs and found a few entries like this:
Code:
Aug 17 09:57:31 localhost postfix/qmgr[3698]: 248ADF32FB: from=<root@localhost.localdomain>, size=435, nrcpt=1 (queue active)
Aug 17 09:58:04 localhost postfix/smtp[27499]: connect to example.com[208.77.188.166]: Connection timed out (port 25)
Aug 17 09:58:04 localhost postfix/smtp[27499]: 248ADF32FB: to=<example@example.com>, relay=none, delay=422022, delays=421990/0.01/33/0, dsn=4.4.1, status=deferred (connect to example.com[208.77.188.166]: Connection timed out)
Something is still sending to localhost and example.com.
Any ideas on what it could be?

could be the message retries.
messages to localhost could be bouncebacks.
not entirely sure as you have not given enough details.


where in the UK are you situated...??
one more thing i would like to ask you is, how come so many questions from you ...just seems like.....a lot for one person....

clear the queue then tail -f the maillog

I know it's a lot of questions but although I have some linux experience it is only on a shared server and with PHP. I'm administrating my own server now and as well as the coding side of things, I'm setting up a proxy server so there's a lot of admin side to everything as well and I want to get everything set up as fully as possible from the start so I have to do less later on
UK - West England though I used to live in London

So, I cleared the queue issuing ipcrm.
A while later I get this in the log, I am not aware of any cronjobs running at this time of day.
