Question Postfix: mail status=deferred, read timeout


Hello,

I hope somebody out there can help me with my problem concerning postfix.
I discovered yesterday that the connection between our postfix server which is a relay host with an acl and our exchange server seems to be temporarily broken or is unavailable. There is the message in the logs: connection timed out (port 25)

It seems to me that the mails are being sent after a postfix restart.

Here are the common outputs/configs. If more is needed, just ask for it.

Regards
____


mail.info
Code:
Jan 10 10:58:14 g99la004 postfix/smtp[29828]: connect to g099sx04.ourdomain[our ip]: Connection timed out (port 25)
/var/log/mail:
Code:
Jan 11 09:00:58 g99la004 postfix/smtpd[595]: 079A9179DA: client=servername[server-ip]
Jan 11 09:00:58 g99la004 postfix/cleanup[600]: 079A9179DA: message-id=<F4E2C2DC-B241-4E0B-BC6A-85FAF7F41692@ourdomain.com>

Jan 11 09:01:28 g99la004 postfix/smtp[603]: 079A9179DA: to=<name2@ourdomain.com>, relay=none, delay=30, status=deferred (connect to g099sx04.ourdomain[serverip]: Connection timed out)
If I restart postfix then it seems to me that the mails are being sended:

mail.info after postfix restat:
