    Qmail not sending the mail to remote


    freebsd 6.2 + qmail

    qmail not sending the mails to remote. but local delivery is fine.

    but send mail to remaote keeps on queue.

    it was working fine for long. suddenly it happened.
    i checked mailserver for spam blacklist in spamhaus and spamcopnet. its not listed.

    dig and nslookup for yahoo and gmail all are sounds good.

    its resolving dns.

    Check that your firewall or ISP didn't start blocking any SMTP ports.
