Default Postfix queueing messages suddenly, connection timed out.

I am having a problem with my postfix server. It was working fine, but
suddenly the emails that are supposed to automatically be sent from one
of my PHP sites are showing connection timed out. Here is the tail of
my /var/log/maillog/. Below that under the lines is a portion of the
mailq results.

I cannot seem to find where the problem is. I tried setting the
disable_dns_lookup=no, but this didn't help. I don't know where else
to look to resolve this issue. BTW, when I telnet to these ip
addresses from my box, I am able to connect just fine. Port 25 isn't
blocked by the ISP.
