Please upgrade to milter-sender-0.62 and libsnert-1.40. It addresses 
this. I wouldn't wait on the next FreeBSD port.

Its most likely the milter is hung or crashed, because of the BDB 1.85 
based cache. Its a know issue that I have not found a solution for other 
than to implement the hash/flatfile cache as default for *BSD. Also 
there have been other improvements with 0.62.
