Jan 15 03:54:24 carteiro postfix/smtpd[13409]: NOQUEUE: reject: RCPT from XXXX.prod.phx3.secureserver.net[208.109.80.xxx]: 450 4.7.1 <my_addresss@op.eu>: Recipient address rejected: Policy Rejection- Please try later.; from=<sally@sender.com> to=<my_addresss@op.eu> proto=ESMTP helo=<XXXX.prod.phx3.secureserver.net>

Why this incoming email is being continuously rejected? The sender server keeps trying but always appears rejected.

Re: Why is being incoming email rejected ?

Please, check the mail log again. The next line after postfix/smtpd should be postfix-policyd. And there you will see the reason why email blocked.


Re: Why is being incoming email rejected ?

Jan 15 03:54:26 carteiro postfix-policyd: rcpt=22, greylist=abuse, host=208.109.80.xx(XXXX.prod.phx3.secureserver.net), from=sally@sender.com, to=my_addresss@op.eu, size=30448


Re: Why is being incoming email rejected ?

I add the ip from the sender in the whitelist. Does it make any difference?

There is two ways to solve this issue:
1 - disable greylisting in postfix policy. set greylisting=0 in /etc/policyd.conf and then restart postfix-policy daemon

2 - visit http://www.allaboutspam.com/email-server-test/ and test you mail server to figure out what goes wrong

Hope it help!


Re: Why is being incoming email rejected ?

It shows the following problems, when i send email out:
Email server is not using BATV format while sending out emails. BATV is recommended to ensure that your users do not become a victim of bounce floods.

Email contains invalid DKIM/Domain Keys Signature. Published Domain Keys policy does not specify whether to accept/reject such emails. Signing your Outbound emails and clearly specifying a policy to accept signed emails will minimize chances of your Email being considered as SPAM.

Email server made the first delivery attempt 0 minutes ago. Email servers are expected to try re-sending emails only after 5 minutes. Please check back after some time.

These are problems for sending emails and i truly appreciate any help to fix these 3 items. Thank you.


Re: Why is being incoming email rejected ?

Disable greylisting in /etc/postfix-policyd.conf. Disabling this option allow you to recieve incoming mails. But anyway you should properly install DKIM for you domain. See this http://www.iredmail.org/forum/post1807.html#p1807
