Trying sending directly first, then sending ISP relay

Post by MP3Freak » 2009-06-15 17:56

Background:
Many IP ranges are blacklisted as BAD senders, just because they are "residential" ranges, not because they actually sent spam. Sometimes it even turns out, that such ranges are not really "residential", but listed by mistakes. Due to this fact, many genuine senders, even with correct SPF and DKIM implementations, will be unable to directly deliver emails. Fortunately, only a smaller part of mailservers behave like this. But still too much.

I'd suggest a feature, to tell hMS to first try direct delivery for (let's say) 3 times, then put the message in the queue for being delivered via the ISP relay. This would give relieve for those, who have delivery limitations on their ISP's SMTP relay.

A new hMailServer 5.2 alpha is available:
http://download.hmailserver.com/hMailSe ... 2-B348.exe

* A new rule action has been added; Create Copy. This can be used for example to deliver copies of the same message to different destination servers.
* A new rule criteria has been added; Delivery attempts. This can be used for example to deliver messages to different routes, depending on the current number of delivery attempts.

Yes, I've seen that. But as I understood it, that would not apply if a delivery has been refused with a 5xx response, as there will not be any "retries" upon this. Or am I wrong with this assumption?

I don't know for sure. As i mentioned in your other thread 5xx codes are supposed to be followed and not ignored. I would surmise based on that, that the above mentioned rules would not currently work after a 5xx reject. Apologies for misunderstanding your intentions with this request.
