hi Experts,

Groupwise GWIA version: 6.5.7
Platform: Netware 5.1

Received non-deliverable error for outbound email to partner's internet domain...Other internet domains were ok. Inbound email from partner's internet domain were ok.

Transcript of session follows:
        Command:  Data...
        Response: 420 TCP write error

I have done a search on google and read thru the following links. Done a spamhaus check to ascertain that our outbound smtp public ip was not blacklisted.  
http://support.novell.com/docs/Tids/Solutions/10060050.html
http://support.novell.com/docs/Tids/Solutions/10080200.html

Done a telnet to partner's internet domain and returned a  "Connect failed" (presumably they have blocked any incoming telnet to their SMTP gateway)

Please advise further troubleshooting steps to identify cause of non-deliverable emails to only certain internet domains.

Does all mail to that domain fail?

Can you try telnetting to the SMTP port of the partner's SMTP server? See the following article about troubleshooting SMTP using Telnet.

http://www.anta.net/misc/telnet-troubleshooting/smtp.shtml

If you can deliver mail by using Telnet then you have a Groupwise problem. If delivery fails anyway there is something different going on...

You can use Telnet from your Netware server with the following telnet client:
