Greylist tweak
August 7th, 2008 15:07 AET

Change: SMTP response codes when greylisting
Services: Mail
Expected impact: More predictable, and faster, retry cycles with mail servers due to tighter RFC compliant status codes.
Potential adverse impact: Longer ‘retry’ times by external servers sending email to Ilisys systems.
Date of rollout: ~14:00 AEST Thursday 7 August 2008
Status: Done
We have a potential solution for the greylisting issue where providers such as Bigpond bounce greylisted mail around their mail pools with fairly long retry cycles. There appears to be a bug in how Postfix handles greylisting SMTP response codes. The current greylist response code is 450 which means there was an error accessing the mailbox, and to retry. There is internet discussion, and we’ve witnessed this, that this results in some providers immediately retrying a few seconds later and then passing it to fallback servers that have long retry cycles. Instead we’re going to use response code 451 which means there was a temporary error, try again soon.
