As per your logs, it seems that you have lost the connectivity on remote server.

Please try to telnet the remote IP

# telnet 98.136.216.26 25

and also check the DNS entries or firewall setting if there is any change.

If it is possible then please post the output of mailq command.

Thanks for reply.

telnet is connecting and my resolve.conf file is
cat /etc/resolv.conf
nameserver 208.67.222.222
nameserver 208.67.220.220
nameserver 202.54.12.164
nameserver 202.54.29.5

Looks like a spam dictionary attack. Yahoo is probably dropping the connections.
