  1. I assume your SMTP solution is going to deliver all mail to a "smart host", and isn't going to do MX resolving itself, and deliver the mail to one of the servers returned. In that case, if you get a "relaying denied" error, you have a serious problem - it basically means all you may be able to do send mail to local users. Your error message should have been "this solution is never ever going to work".
  2. If the user gets a "connection refused" message, he'll be pissed. He doesn't want a "connection refused" message from an MTA. He wants the MTA to queue the mail and retry again. That's the task of the MTA - not the task of the user. This problem was solved more than 30 years ago.
  3. If you just fill in a correct return address errors, not only the error message will be send to the user, the mail as sent will be returned as well, even if there's a problem (like 'relaying denied') further down the line.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
