FC3 running default sendmail as supplied with package.

I have a customer who normally has no problems sending emails. however now his emails are reporting Deferred: Connection reset by mail.millenniacorp.com.

I to get the same response if i use the same mail server.

Watch Question

Is millenniacorp.com his isp? Why is he using it as a relay?



no its not his ISP. he is sending thru my mail server and its my servers maillog that shows the error.

he is posting to a list LegacyUserGroup-owner@mail.millenniacorp.com or Support@MillenniaCorp.com both of which report the error.

mail.millenniacorp.com is an MS box running InterScan anti-virus software - the problem is probably at their end :)
