Re: smtp(8) question re hotmail.com


I found another thing about this problem: That this is a relatively
new problem. On my ZMailer running at my home, the smtp TA that
identified itself as from 2.99.50s11 treated the 554 Transaction
Failed as a temporary failure and would retry.

Perhaps this problem got introduced when the handling of 5xx errors
was changed to correct some other problems?

Sample log (from the 2.99.50s11 smtp TA) followed by sample output
from mailq:
