RE: Weird problems with MMAIL



fixed

James,

We had a similar error a few months back. We we're using SNDDST to send mail, relay to Exchange.
We made a change to a different Exchange server.
Only internal email was working, external email was failing.
Exchange settings had to be changed allow relay for both internal and external email.

QGATE@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

NOT ABLE TO DELIVER MAIL TO SOME/ALL RECIPIENTS.
REPLY CODES WITH FIRST DIGIT = '4' OR '5' ARE ERROR REPLIES.
ERRORS THAT DO NOT HAVE ERROR REPLY CODES MAY EXIST.

James:

Google search for "QGATE ibm as/400 gateway" (without quotes) ...

The first link returned should be:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Miscellaneous/Q_25354161.html

This thread says that for some reason the DNS system was unable to resolve the address (of where to send the e-mail to).

HTH,

Fellow Midrange Geeks:

Anybody know what "QGATE@<server>.<domain>" could be, in the context
of a bounce message resulting from something sent from an AS/400?

We got some bounces on messages we sent through MMAIL from our monthly
invoicing system, that we were then able to successfully resend
manually, and I've already asked Mr. Perotti about it, and it doesn't
make a lot of sense to him, either.

The bounces seem to conform to the following pattern (I've censored
the actual email addresses to "sender@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx" and
"recipient@xxxxxxxxxx"):

Subject: UNDELIVERABLE MAIL

HOST venus NOT ABLE TO DELIVER MAIL TO FOLLOWING RECIPIENT(S):
<recipient@xxxxxxxxxx>
RETRIES EXHAUSTED WHILE ATTEMPTING TO CONNECT TO REMOTE HOST domain.

** TEXT OF MAIL FOLLOWS **
and what followed was essentially the same as we'd see if we did a
"display source" on the original message.

"venus" is the AS/400 from which we're sending the automated invoices,
and "venus.private.touchtonecorp.com" matches what we see in the
CHGTCPDMN screen thereon. But I haven't a clue what
"QGATE@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx" could be.
