This is not an MS problem. I speculate that you do not any or just a bit of 
rejection at MTA level? It's quite common that spamming machines do not work 
correctly and have all sorts of problems with starting up an SMTP connection. 
If you are hit by this the best way to cope with it is to issue a killall 
sendmail before you restart ms/sendmail. If you use strict measures who you 
allow to send mail to you you can reduce this very much, although not to zero.
