Hi,

We are using smtp.sbcglobal.net as our smart host for outgoing mail.

Last night we started receiving what looks like bounces (although they 
might simply be saying that messages were deferred for a bit) from SBC.

The relevant parts seem to be:

Has anyone else seen this? Is it a transient thing?
