Yes they do have a problem :). I guess they will loose a lot of email if
they don't fix it.

I think it worked the second time because the grey listing wasn't in
effect the second time. All email will fail until the grey listing
period has finished

From an SMTP view this is the correct behavior. The first SMTP server
reported that it wasn't functional and the second fallback server said
that it doesn't accept email for that domain.
The other party should fix this because they are going to loose a lot of
email (well at least the emails sent until the grey listing period has
A possible workaround could be by adding an explicit transport for that
domain. The transport should only specify the IP address of the server
that allows email (after the rgey list period).
so for example:
I think you already use a recipient dependent transport (or at least did
in the past if I remember it correctly). I have added the instructions
below (which is a copy of the instructions you have used before).
Hope this helps
==== Instructions about adding a recipient dependent transport ===
Djigzo uses Postfix for the actual delivery of email so yes this is
possible. This however requires you to login with SSH because it cannot
be done with the web interface.
It depends on you Linux skills whether you can do it yourself or whether
you have to ask someone else.
1) Create a file /etc/postfix/tranports and add the domains for which
you want to use an an alternative relay transport:
the file in /etc/postfix/transports should look like:
You can use vi or any other command line editor. You have to make sure
you use sudo because writing a file in /etc/postfix requires root
access. You can add additional domains on a new line.
2) the tranports map must be converted to a hashmap:
$sudo postmap /etc/postfix/transports
(the postmap command converts the transports file to transports.db)
3) the main postfix config must now be told to use this transport map.
You have to add the following line to /etc/postfix/main.cf:
transport_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/transports
(this step can be done using the web management page by clicking admin
-> MTA config -> MTA raw config. You can add the above line to the raw
main.cf config and apply.
4) restart postfix
sudo /etc/init.d/postfix restart

when trying to relay emails over djigzo, i get the following response: "5.7.1
relaying not allowed"
but if the mails are sent directly to the recipient the email went through.
i have figured out that they have two mx records
if i connect to server1 i get the message "please try again later"
if i connect to server2 i get the message "5.7.1 relaying not allowed"
so my suggestion is, that djigzo refuses the email after connecting to the
how can i change this behavior?
