So the mail module is not correctly capturing the exception, but the
base issue that causes the problem is:

[Errno 111] Connection refused

Which might happen for many reasons, most likely resource starvation
(num of connections/file descriptors/firewall throttle/etc).

I would check dmesg and other logs for the same period on both
machines (the one executing the task and smtp server) to see if either
hit a limit.
