Mail in queues

We have been experiencing some Internet outages with our ISP.  We are backup but I am noticing a lot of email in the queues going out bound and they don't seem to be going out.  I stopped and started the SMTP default server, and notice that the connectors are all active now.  Not seeing any error msgs in the logs.  Am seeing some can not resolve DNS comments.

Any idea?  Should I just give it some time to send?

never mind....seems either running /flushdns or reload or stoping and starting the dns server on the AD controller fixed the problem

did not run those...I had figured it was my dns server some how not talking to the world...cause it getting bounced up and down like a yoyo for the past 24hours from my isp...and after I did all three of the above it opened the flood gates.

don't use Logix as an ISP...just a bit of advice
