That'll probably happen again; it happened because
was turned off. It was running a vulnerable version of BIND; I took
it offline when the vulnerability was announced. When I could bring
fit back online weeks later, it posted the mail it had queued weeks

It is not a good idea to depend on a machine you don't have
administrative access to. I've remedied the situation --- but now
it's down with what seems to be a hardware failure. So now I need
physical access to it, or someone competent to replace failed power
supplies and so forth with physical access to it.

I think I'll just mail the machine to California where I can babysit

It's hard to tell --- we'll just have to wait and see.
