Exchange randomly not sending messages

Hello,

Clients of mine randomly get the following message:

Delivery is delayed to these recipients or groups:
Recipient Name (recipient@comast.net) (recipient@comast.net)
Subject: Subject of message
This message hasn't been delivered yet. Delivery will continue to be attempted.
The server will keep trying to deliver this message for the next 1 days, 19 hours and 54 minutes. You'll be notified if the message can't be delivered by that time.


This time the sender got the following:

Delivery has failed to these recipients or groups:

Recipient Name (recipient@comast.net) (recipient@comast.net)
The server has tried to deliver this message, without success, and has stopped trying. Please try sending this message again. If the problem continues, contact your helpdesk.

Diagnostic information for administrators:

Generating server: SERVER0001.Domain.local

recipient@comast.net

Is customer on a static IP address?,  Check to make sure they have a valid SPF record.

Hi ktaczala,

Yes, they do have a static IP.  Do I go into the registrar to add the SPF.  If so, I have never added an SPF, what is the syntax?

Hi Wilder,

Is your answer related to ktaczala regarding SPF?

Have a great day,

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

SPF is a "new" dns feature. This framework should give you as mail administrator the possibility to check if the mail is really from the server you expected.

Yes, you need access to the customer's ISP account or have the ISP do it.
Here's a link to create the SPF Record.

Hi Guys,

I apologize, I am confused.  There are three ISPs involved: mine (I host the e-mail), the client's (their office) and the sender.  Which needs the SPF?

Have a great weekend,

Don

Which ever ISP handles the MX record.

So it's not the ISP, but the registrar.

Depends, lots of registrar's like godaddy host the DNS, MX etc. , but some users tend to use them only for the registration of the domain name and use a different website host to handle all DNS, MX, etc.
I personally host my DNS, MX, SPF, etc. with zoneedit, & I have complete access to all those settings.
