I had something like this once. The problem was due to the mail server
attempting to do an ident check on the machine which was talking to
it. The timeout period of this on the mail server was longer than the
default timeout period in Rebol.
The solution was to turn the ident request off on the mail server
although if you have no access to that you should be able to increase
the Rebol timeout value instead.
