I 've also had this problem. 
In my case, it arises when the mailserver is to busy ( defeating spam ).
I allowed the mail server to start more processes and the problem was gone.

Try to telnet to port 25 of your mail server. If you wait (nearly) for every 
to see the banner, this is the cause for yellow!

The other cause may be, that the server doesnt like to b hit by an HELO/QUIT 
before he has sent his banner, as many spammers act like this,
