eric Posted October 12, 2007 Share Posted October 12, 2007 I have an email filtering account set up to filter all my email and forward it to a secret email address. Starting last night I'm seeing these errors while forwarding email to SC: Oct 12 08:40:17 mail sendmail: l9BHgrml019814: to=[me][at]spamcop.net, [user1][at]spamcop.net, delay=21:53:14, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=esmtp, pri=2494409 , relay=mx2.spamcop.net., dsn=4.0.0, stat=Deferred: Connection reset by mx2.spam cop.net. Oct 12 08:40:17 mail sendmail: l9BHStOx019627: to=[me][at]spamcop.net, del ay=22:11:05, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=esmtp, pri=2501800, relay=mx2.spamcop.net., dsn=4.0.0, stat=Deferred: Connection reset by mx2.spamcop.net. Oct 12 08:40:18 mail sendmail: l9CFeDOD002123: to=<quick.64TA0gYbpcQMPWYl[at] spam.spamcop.net>, ctladdr=<mail[at]mail.abcstuff.com> (8/12), delay=00:00:03, xdel ay=00:00:03, mailer=esmtp, pri=121815, relay=vmx2.spamcop.net.

[64.88 .168.71], dsn=4.2.0, stat=Deferred: 450 Delivery delayed temporarily (#4.7.1) Oct 12 08:43:38 mail sendmail: l9CFhKBo002178: mx.spamcop.net.: SMTP DATA- 1 protocol error: 250 ok Roughly 50% of emails getting forwarded to SC for filtering are being rejected variously with "Connection reset", "Delivery delayed temporarily", or "protocol error" 4xx error status. The pattern seems to be that MX servers with names of the form "vmx*.spamcop.net" work fine, but servers "mx1.spamcop.net" and "mx2.spamcop.net" are not accepting incoming SMTP transactions from our mail server at 126.96.36.199. Only mx.spamcop.net and mx2.spamcop.net are published in the DNS, I assume SC has some internal load balancing behind those two public names. If MX servers mx1 or mx2 come up in the rotation, the transaction fails. On an immediate manual rerun of the queue, the same message that had just been rejected is accepted by a different SC MX server. Maybe something needs a whack on the side?
