Exchange Yahoo.com, Rogers.com, Yahoo.ca cant send mail to them

Hey Guys.

Not sure whats up here My exchange server can deliver mail to the about mentioned domains.

It sits in the queue for a few days then I get a 4.4.7 error saying

This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification.

"Unable to deliver message to the following recipients, due to being unable to connect successfully to the destination mail server."


Where should i Start o troubleshoot this issue?

have you checked if your IP is blacklisted, contact your ISP and let them know the issue. it should be resolved from their side.

this is typically because the IP you are sending from doesn't have a PTR record

go to http://mxtoolbox.com and run a diagnostic

But we have been sending mail for years to those addresses.

How do create a PTR record?

I ran it and it listed the ISP name server. Pretty sure we have a ptr record.  went through something similar a year ago.

you don't have a lot of options

1. You are blacklisted
2. you don't have a PTR
3. you have connectivity problems with these domains


from your exchange server try

telnet a.mx.mail.yahoo.com 25
ehlo yourdomain.com
 (wait for a reply)
mail from:<you@yourdomain.com>
(wait for reply)
rcpt to:<user@yahoo.com>
(wait for reply)

you are blacklisted

This error message indicates we are seeing a high volume of messages from your IP address that is a characteristic of unsolicited, bulk emails. While this is a temporary SMTP error code, we do not recommend attempting to resend your messages until you examine your subscription practices and lists, and implement changes to ensure that your messages are sent only to users who have requested it

i need to send Yahoo some info and I am not sure how to get this


* Log messages from your mail server showing which IP you connected to
and what responses you got from the remote server at the time you
received the failures.
