501 Domain must resolve - can't find the problem
Posted on 2007-11-16
I am using an Exchange Server 2003.
When sending to some specific servers, I get the error:
There was a SMTP communication problem with the recipient's email server. Please contact your system administrator.
<mail.fire-development.com #5.5.0 smtp;501 Domain must resolve>
I don't understand it, because in my opinion I considered everything:
mail.fire-development.com resolves to 188.8.131.52
184.108.40.206 resolves to mail.fire-development.com (RDNS)
There also exists an SPF entry for my domain which is accepted by a great german ISP (1&1).
But still, I get that error for one specific mail server.
When I connect to that server directly via telnet, I say
and receive as anser:
Hello mail.fire-development.com (may be forged), pleased to meet you
And after sending the MAIL FROM command, it closes the connection and says "Domain must resolve"
Here is the header of a mail I sent to the big german ISP:

There you can see, that RDNS works, the connection to the mail server comes from the correct IP address and so on...
I don't know what is still missing, please help
