Also your mail server may just be busy at the time their mail server try to
connect.

  Unfortunately this is likely not true, and it's not David's fault. 
Due to lots and lots of potential problems that could occur, a
connection may not be established to the target mailserver for a
particular message. When this occurs that particular message gets
re-queueud to allow other messages to be sent. The problem may be fixed
by the time the 'reply' message is sent so the 'original' message shows
up later when it's time comes up again.

 These many problems include such silly things like a failure in the
connection from your mail server to the hub - as occured to us just
yesterday, or actual 'breaks' in the internet.
