Where is the Message Delivery Delay Notice checkbox?

Post by JVRudnick » Wed Mar 23, 2005 11:28 pm

Hello all...

For some reason (famous last words, eh?) ME standard has decided that it must send me notices, every 10 or 20 minutes now it seems, that it can not deliver an email to a certain yahoo.com address....

MailEnable: Message delivery has been delayed.

Message is waiting at domain.com for delivery to mx3.mail.yahoo.com.

Reason: Mail Server for yahoo.com could not accept your email at this time. MailEnable will keep trying to deliver this message and will notify you of any progress.


Message headers follow:

From: "Delivery Subsystem" <jrudnick@kkti.com>
To: <suilnzzhpo@yahoo.com>
Subject: Message Delivery Delay
Date: Tue, 22 Mar 2005 18:19:01 -0600
Message-ID: <DFA8BD1156E4715B0D9F8A96357C3.MAI@domain.com>
Precedence: bulk

I have not one clue as to who sent same, but I know that this was NOT me. Therefore, I am wondering...

IS this a case of relay spam on my server? Or? And most importantly how can I tell? Oh, and where is the checkbox to turn OFF these notices...

???

I just ran a couple of online tests.
From http://www.abuse.net/cgi-bin/relaytest
I got the following

Relay test 16
>>> RSET
<<< 250 Requested mail action okay, completed
>>> MAIL FROM:<spamtest@kkti.com>
<<< 250 Requested mail action okay, completed
>>> RCPT TO:<abuse.net!securitytest@kkti.com>
<<< 250 Requested mail action okay, completed

Relay test result
Hmmn, at first glance, host appeared to accept a message for relay.
THIS MAY OR MAY NOT MEAN THAT IT'S AN OPEN RELAY.

Some systems appear to accept relay mail, but then reject messages internally rather than delivering them, but you cannot tell at this point whether the message will be relayed or not.

You cannot tell if it is really an open relay without sending a test message; this anonymous user test DID NOT send a test message.
You need to check your logs to see if the message was actually dropped.

Cheers,

Owen
