Well I created a little mess for myself.  I configured the Exchange
machine some with filtering and it was blocking some emails.  The
maillog would say this:

Aug 18 07:47:34 WoodenMS2 sendmail[2677]: k7IBlMHk002635:
to=<cbutler at woodmaclaw.com>, delay=00:00:12, xdelay=00:00:00,
mailer=esmtp, pri=121593, relay=[] [], dsn=4.0.0,
stat=Deferred: Connection refused by []

So seemingly the ones that got the connection refused message are being
held in MailScanner.

I configured exchanges rules, and I no longer get these messages and all
email is not getting rejected.  The Outbound used to be about 300 and
seemingly they were all going to get delivered until it stuck on 153,
well 152 now.  (minus one email in about 10 minutes)

Am I missing something to get MailScanner to deliver these emails?
