If its is not broken, can you explain this?

The first email goes out fine as I sent to the receipiant earlier, the second temp fails....

If I remove the milter from sendmail.mc and re-compile email works fine, so its not sendmail as far as I can tell.

Could it be the database not responding fast enough? which would be strange as this is a lot faster machine than the old...
