Default Astaro Notifications in SMTP Spool

I'm using the ASG v7 software on a beige box for home use. I don't run my own mail server and I don't use the mail security portion of the ASG but I do use the e-mail notifications. I recently stopped receiving the e-mail notifications (they've been working for about a year). I didn't make any changes to the system within weeks of the problem. I found the notifications stuck in the SMTP spool on the ASG.

Here's a snip from the log:

2009:04:01-14:16:31 (none) smtpd[3658]: MASTER[3658]: QR globally disabled, status two set to 'disabled'
2009:04:01-14:16:33 (none) exim[3716]: 2009-04-01 14:16:33 pid 3716: SIGHUP received: re-exec daemon

2009:04:01-23:58:51 (none) smtpd[12018]: SCANNER[12018]: Nothing to do, exiting.

I'm not seeing SMTP, SMTP SSL, or DNS blocked on the packet filter and I set rules to allow each of them to any on any, just to test.

Any idea how to fix this? I really appreciate any help.
