    Found these errors/warnings in my mail.log - no idea what is wrong, googling didn't help:
    The only idea I have is that I recently tried using the free DNS servers from Opendns in /etc/resolv.conf, no other change except that. I have changed them back to the default ones from my ISP to see if that was maybe the cause?

    Code:
