Maybe it's just load. Does postfix have that feature where it temporarily 
postpones delivery (it just queues) if the load on the server is too high? 

If there are some intermittent load issues, that could explain why some mail 
goes through right away, and other mail gets stuck. 

Though - 9 hours in the queue seems unlikely in this scenario, unless the 
retry sequence is somehow mucked up. Or, perhaps load spikes every time 
delivery is tried.
