SMTP connections timed out on EIMS 3.1.4 - Mac Networking

Hello, i'm running EIMS 3.1.4 on MacOS 8.5 since quite some time but since one week, i've got a big problem i can't understand : randomly, i've got a lot of error "Incoming connections timed out from xx.xx.xx.xx" form different IP that are valid (some are from my own client) and with that, the incoming SMTP thread are full (i set the maximum number to 32, but even if i increase this number, it's full every time) and the server don't seem to get mail (the incoming mail file on the disk doesn't grow, it stays at 4 kb) This ...

    Default SMTP connections timed out on EIMS 3.1.4

    Hello,

    i'm running EIMS 3.1.4 on MacOS 8.5 since quite some time but since
    one week, i've got a big problem i can't understand :

    randomly, i've got a lot of error "Incoming connections timed out from
    xx.xx.xx.xx" form different IP that are valid (some are from my own
    client) and with that, the incoming SMTP thread are full (i set the
    maximum number to 32, but even if i increase this number, it's full
    every time) and the server don't seem to get mail (the incoming mail
    file on the disk doesn't grow, it stays at 4 kb)

    This problem come and go randomly and i don't know what is the cause
    or what solution i can set to prevent that.

    For information, i've still got space on the disk (50% full) and i use
    the latest filter from EIMS. Rebooting the computer when it's
    happening don't seem to correct anything whatsoever....

    So, anyone has an idea ?

    Any help appreciated.

    Thanks

    It could simply be a side-effect of the general glut of mail traffic
    being generated by the latest W32 virus/trojan/worm (swen?) I had a
    PC on a network I help admin get infected with this before the AV defs
    caught up with the outbreak, and it absolutely hammered the local mail
    server, to the point that all the SMTP connections were saturated and
    other mail wasn't getting through. What I noticed about this from the
    logs is that the virus/whatever was trying to dump as fast as possible
    into the server - it wasn't even waiting for responses in the SMTP
    canversation.
