450 Temporary address resolution failure error

450 Temporary address resolution failure error
« on: May 24, 2021, 12:28:56 PM »
I had a report of emails sent to a Koozali server being bounced back with the error:
'550 5.4.300 Message expired -> 450 Temporary address resolution failure (#4.4.3)'

Searching the forums came up with this thread:
https://forums.contribs.org/index.php?topic=53062.0

and by adding the sender to the whitelist the problem disappeared. However, I was curious, so went to the qsmtpd log files and found the following. The sender is myfarm.co.uk, and the server is mydealer.co.uk:

I'm no DNS expert, but it looks like myfarm.co.uk have errors with the MX record. They use Office365 from what I can see.

Does anyone have any thoughts? Thanks.

I'm pretty sure this is saying that the SME server timed out trying to resolve 'myfarm.co.uk'

I've never seen or heard of this affecting DNS particularly, but if nslookup myfarm.co.uk works from the SME itself you should check the 'PMTU' value between your SME and the DNS server(s) you're using.  There's a wiki section about PMTU and qpsmtpd connection timeouts.

Thanks. The fact that it was working fine, and then has suddenly stopped made me wonder about something like this.
