I don't see a problem there.
The email was queued for delivery, you simply didn't end the session, so it timed out.

Once the message has been accepted for delivery, you need to end the session. That is usually done with something like quit or exit. Otherwise the session remains open because you might be sending another message. Eventually it will time out.
