Zimbra: Client Host Rejected

Postby leebrent » Thu May 29, 2008 11:05 am

Hello,
I have the following version of Zimbra running on FC7:

zcs-5.0.6_GA_2313.F7.20080522100316
I run a DNS test on my domain itas.ca at the following URL:
DNS Quick Check - DNS Report Tool, Test your DNS delegation, DNS Servers, Mail and Web Servers, Network Admins, Webmasters, Hosting
And the mail error that I am getting has my attention:
<<
>>> HELO DNS Quick Check - DNS Report Tool, Test your DNS delegation, DNS Servers, Mail and Web Servers, Network Admins, Webmasters, Hosting

<<
>>> MAIL FROM:

<<
>>> RCPT TO:

<<
>>> RCPT TO:

<<
>>> RCPT TO:

<<
>>> RCPT TO:

<<: Recipient address rejected: itas.ca

Probably mail server does not accept mail for itas.ca (received status 550)
I was under the impression that all inbound mail was getting to this server until a user indicated that one of her friends was getting a bounce when emailing her.
The information that I have from the bounce is as follows:
Diagnostic-Code: X-BorderWare-Security-Platform; host

mail.itas.ca[142.25.97.202] said: 450 4.7.1 : Helo

command rejected: Host not found (in reply to RCPT TO command)

Will-Retry-Until: Mon, 2 Jun 2008 20:49:37 -0400 (EDT)
I have tired turning off the following, and still receive this error:
Hostname in greeting violates RFC (reject_invalid_hostname)

Client must greet with a fully qualified hostname (reject_non_fqdn_hostname)

Client's IP address (reject_unknown_client)

Hostname in greeting (reject_unknown_hostname)

Sender's domain (reject_unknown_sender_domain)'
Can someone offer me a solution for this problem, and possibly a way to test it without having to contact the user from csc-scc.gc.ca?

Is this a new install or has the server been working for a while? Is it behind a NAT router or firewall? Run the following (on the zimbra server):
cat /etc/hosts 

host `hostname`
dig yourdomain.com mx

dig yourdomain.com any
and post the results.
Regards

Bill

Is the only reason (apart from the bounced message) you think this is not working is because of the results of your DNS tests earlier? I have just done the same test on your server and the results were OK.
I'd suggest you check in the log files and see what errors are there and what reason was given for the bounce you mentioned earlier.
Regards

Bill

This is what I found in the logs... The odd thing is that this person can email hotmail, but the mail does not make it to my server...
