Issue: Wheel goes into Catapsis due to overwhelming amounts of SPAM 
originating from some customer mail servers. This problem exhibitied 
itself after the barracuda AntiSpam firewall was reconfigured to 
accomodate SMTP services, for the wheel upgrade path.

Reported: By Robert Nickerson and Staff

Resolution: Barracuda corrected, and wheel unplugged from the network 
while it procmailed. Logged in at the console and waited for a while to 
get a prompt, then killed sendmail and removed mail from mailq, network 
connection restored at around 17:55
