I can't find anything out about this socket error. We are seeing a lot of delivery delays across all of the domains we host mail for. I'm not sure what this socket error relates to but I'm thinking we have a DNS issue. Opinions?

Are the domains you mention using the same MTA ? I am wondering if SMTP connections are being dropped possibly if you are in a block list. Try as a test smart hosting through another box/IP as a test..

We're not blocked. I check this weekly almost. What's even more strange that that even after the delay email the message is almost always delivered. I think ME is mis-interpreting the receiving mail server.

I stand to be corrected here but the error you reported usually means there is an SMTP communications issue which you can expect if you are being blocked somewhere. The other things to look for are then routing issues such as bottlenecks. I would say its not DNS, not sure what hardware you use but may be worth looking through the syslogs and you may even find you have a problem router somewhere. If you can afford to do it go through the proces of reboots, I have an 1800 series router that often needs a restart due to a memory leak and it always effects SMTP.

We are running a netvanta 3430 and never gave that a thought. I will research that, thanks.
