smtp; 550 relaying denied

smtp; 550 relaying denied
« on: January 18, 2019, 04:50:26 AM »
After searching the forums, I have not seen this question asked, so:

I have set the email delivery to reject unknown email addresses.

During testing I noticed that when sending an email to an invalid email account, at the correct domain, I receive back a "smtp; 550 relaying denied" message, when I would have expected something more like of these common 'generic' 550 messages:

550 Invalid recipient
550 No such user here

My rationale is that as the domain is correct, and therefore it is not a relaying issue, but it is just the user account is invalid.

Now I am the first to say that while I am a long time SME Server user (since version 4), I am not a mail expert; what do other people think and should this message be changed (and how)  8-)

Since posting I have found that this is an open bug https://bugs.contribs.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10323

Cheers Douglas
