The last time I had this same error it turned out that it was broken
routers/hosts upstream from me that was setting the DF bit. I just
dropped the MTU on the qmail box and all was sweet again. Since then
I have put in a new IOS on the cisco router and I now remove the DF bit
at the border.
May not be your problem but would still be worth checking.
