Subject [jira] Updated: (JAMES-358) Too many RemoteDelivery attempts with many mx and many ip
Date Wed, 16 Mar 2005 15:51:20 GMT
     [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JAMES-358?page=history ]

Danny Angus updated JAMES-358:

    type: Bug  (was: Improvement)

For James to retry other MX servicing the same domain after receiving a bona fide 5xy permanent
error seems to me to be a defect:
[rfc 2821]
5yz   Permanent Negative Completion reply
      The command was not accepted and the requested action did not
      occur.  The SMTP client is discouraged from repeating the exact
      request (in the same sequence).  Even some "permanent" error
      conditions can be corrected, so the human user may want to direct
      the SMTP client to reinitiate the command sequence by direct
      action at some point in the future (e.g., after the spelling has
      been changed, or the user has altered the account status).

>     Priority: Minor

> Take a domain with 5 mx servers each one with 6 associated ips. James currently try to
connect to each MX server even if the first server say "5.1.1 user unknown", but even worst,
james try to connect to each IP of each MX server.
> I think that james should only check each MX server once, at a random IP address from
the IP list for that mx hostname.
> The permanent user error issue would be only a further optimization but the IP issue
is probably against the RFC specifications.
