AE program generated synchronous messages to a third party. A request is made and the response is received and processed. There is a loop in the program that inserts employee Ids and sends the information to the third party. While executing the loop, the system fails with “External System Contact Error’. and ''The host couldn't be resolved'. Failure is intermittent.
Error seen in AE program log files and in the Errorlog.html

The issue can be reproduced by Running an AE program that generates synchronous messages within a loop.
