Thanks Steve, I'm honored by the confidence :) I've been having network connectivity issues and fell a lot back in my email backlog. I'm back online, with a better setup now, so things will start improving I guess. > This is not a Sendmail issue, per-se. You are right about that. The original email by Duane Winner said: I need help to resolve a problem with my sendmail server. In my /var/log/maillog, I've been seeing: sm-mta: l9H4EoAn001753: outbound-mail-10.bluehost.com [220.127.116.11] did not issue MAIL/EXPN/VRFY/ETRN during connection to IPv4 This usually means that there is an incoming connection from the host outbound-mail-10.bluehost.com, whose IP address is 18.104.22.168, but the connection was lost before the host managed to issue any commands to deliver email, query for alias expansion, and so on. Whenever I've seen this happening, it is usually some sort of network setup error, broken routing, a misconfigured router in the path between the originating host (outbound-mail-10.bluehost.com) and Sendmail, or something similar. > If we can take this back one step to re-evaluate the entire situation > it may help: > > - what is the domain you are seeing issues with (are there more than > one?

Good points :) Duane, can you respond to the questions of Steve above? They will at least provide us with hints to start troubleshooting this better. - Giorgos _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
