Sendmail, Connection time out with... but mail was delivered


I've got some problems with sendmail. The problem is that sendmail tries to sendmail to some host and in maillog
Oct 17 14:11:28 ns sendmail[9396]: h9H9r6c9009391: to=<someuser@somedomain>, ctladdr=<someuser@localdomain> (6116/600), delay=00:18:22, xdelay=00:18:22, mailer=esmtp, pri=30467, relay=somedomain. [], dsn=4.0.0, stat=Deferred: Connection timed out with somedomain.
On the other side the receipt gets mail. Finally after 2 days tries a message is sent with status Ok.

But other side receives about 5 to 50 letters.

Why it happens?

In file I made some changes to timeouts... will it help - I don't know.

Does anybody meet the same problem and already solved?


connection, mta
