I have a some mail aggregation software on my Server2012/Exchange2013 box called Mailforward.

On occasion I receive the aforementioned error during the phase the application is passing emails onto the local receive connector.  I cant think what has changed within my environment that has recently induced this annoyance.  I don't recollect seeing it before, any idea's what is likely to be causing this?  And one more thing if you don't mind i have run the command.

Oh and for extra brownie points does anyone have any idea why my Exchange management Shell command

Set-ReceiveConnector "WILDSRV2012.gresidence.homeip.net\Default Recieve Connector" -MaxInboundConnectionPerSource 500

Appeared to be accepted but had no effect  and I still get the 421 4.4.3 error shown in the log?

The application cycles through 6 different external account and forwards the mail to 6 different respective internal mailbox accounts.

You set the limit to 500 and what i know is that Applications do send emails to large DL's or with restrictions that can cause such issues for sure

Hi Rancy,

none of my SMTP target email address's are distribution lists.  The are all single alias email address's associated with individual Exchange mailboxes.

In a nut shell its simply 6 email accounts getting their email forwarded to 6 different email accounts.  Never had this issue at any point prior, the only thing I did was restore the Exchange box using Veeam (its a VM btw)

Yes Rancy appologies if I failed to highlight that.  The its a Exchange 2013 server on a Server 2012 box so pretty bleeding edge stuff.

The server aggregates from gmail and yahoo account and forwards onto its self i.e 127.0.0.1 aka the actual address 192.168.0.100.  I have attached the following picture since they say a thousand words :)

I still have no idea what causes this problem but I do know that if left for several hours it seems to go away without any input from myself?  Does that help

I can only think of some replication or cache issue that cleared out and issue got fixed (more of a assumption)
