I assume that's a problem with the Sendmail server at Danann.hea.ie.
It was down once in a while (preferably weekends) in the last weeks
(which I noticed by receiving about 70 Celtic-L mails daily for a
week, then two days none, then 70 daily again). If something like
this happens, the server usually queues the mail up and sends it
again after a certain time period (usually in 5 day intervalls, at
least three tries).
