ERROR: SMTP could not connect to any DNS server

This question has been asked and answered on another thread, however the solution didn't help me fix my troubles. I have a server running Win Server 2003 with Exchange 2003. I have a list of emails in the Exchange queue with the status as retry and the message in the Additional Queue Information "SMTP could not connect to any DNS server"

All incoming e-mail seems to be fine. The DNS server on the NIC card is set to the server's IP address. I just can't figure out why it would be giving me this message.

If the other threads didn't help, I'll assume that the basic stuff (making sure the server can resolve DNS, etc.) has been checked.  So, can you post a couple of the domains that aren't resolving?
