Hey all,

Running Postfix on a FC6 system. I've set up cron to
run a script each night to scan the logs in a way I
like (as a supplemental to Logwatch).                 
   It dumps the results to a text file, which it is
supposed to then send to my gmail account.

Lately, when I use MUTT to check root's email account
on the system, I see a lot of messages like the

Why are these messages bouncing back? The funny thing
is that some of them do get through properly, but
about half are returned in the fashion above.

Is it a configuration issue with Postfix perhaps?
Network latency? An issue of some kind on gmail's end?

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Thanks, Matt
