qmail is encountering delivery problems to those servers for some
messages.  This is normal; some of the bigger mail networks (Yahoo,
Hotmail, etc) experience huge surges in demand that they aren't always
prepared for, and smaller networks simply sometimes aren't available.

It's not "failing"; it's simply unable to successfully deliver a message
at this time.  That delivery is deferred, and qmail will try again

qmail-tcpok + ALRM to qmail-send will make qmail immediately retry all
messages in the queue -- however, this can't guarantee that those
deliveries will succeed.  If some are deferred, they will (again) be
retried later.

This is just the way the internet and SMTP work; you can't change it.
