we have a dv server with mediatmeple, running apache 2.2, and plesk panel 10.3.
for some reason, when sending mail from our domain to theirs, or when they send email to ours, the messages bounce back with the '
retry timeout' error.
before messages bounce back which we send out to this domain, i see them stuck in the mail queue in plesk panel: http://i.imgur.com/lRrqy.png
example of info in bounced message:
