OMFG, I just received a bounce from an e-mail I sent 6 months ago.
The mail was written to postmasters, complaining about their MTA's not understanding 45x codes. Sounds like that is just the beginning of their problems...
/me wonders if that "lost connection" was 6 months ago, or ran for 6 months before it got lost...
This is the Postfix program at host gs-smta-01.broadbandscope.net.

Sorry, but you guys have no technical contact listed anywhere, so I just mailed all the relevant postmasters.
Your outgoing mail servers don't seem to retry mail when they get temporary errors (45x series). The problem servers for me were gs-mta-04.broadbandscope.net [220.127.116.11] and gs-mta-03.broadbandscope.net [18.104.22.168].
