As Eric mentioned awhile back, we are experiencing some problems with
the lists that evolt.org maintains. Specifically, we are being hit by
spammers and/or slow remote connections to our MTA (mail transfer
agent). Mail clients are connecting to the server and sending large
files or simply not completing their mail session. This ties up a
mail server process, of which there are a limited number. We've
implemented shorter timeouts and are actively killing what appear to
be "hung" processes. We hope that this has helped the situation.
On another topic, we will be trying to move all of the lists to a new,
faster server in the near future. We will be using a new MTA which is
hopefully more efficient and better able to handle the load.
