  The text, of which this is the last line:

	Policy analysis reports temporary DNS error
	with your source domain.  Retrying may help,
	or if the condition persists, you may need
	to get somebody to fix your DNS servers.

is used for MAIL FROM addresses which have invalid domain.
Check the source address in the message, and you will likely
notice it to have some error in it.

	Perhaps that is it, messing with the envelope(s) is always
	dangerous business...  ;)
