Sorry, just getting back in from a long weekend otherwise I would have
followed up on this yesterday. There appears to be one mail server that
was hung, and as you noted it was mx13. I am still investigating what
is/was wrong with mx13, in the meantime it is out of our load balancer.
All mail servers that are RFC-compliant will resend their messages, in
fact I've seen a bunch of messages from list trickle in already.
