Hi again Oliver,

Just a further note on this one...

The C{ResOK}TEMP line only works for tempfail (451) domain resolution, not permanent ones. To allow permanent failed domain resolution to come through, the setting is this:


I still couldn't get that message that was failing, and another one arrived as well, so I looked further using your tip (C{ResOK}TEMP) in my search, and got directed to the sendmail cf README at sendmail.org, and just above what you suggested is the line above for permanent errors.

After adding this, both messages were delivered and consequently directed to my spamdrop by mimedefang.

It seems we both missed the answer in the README file  :-)

Thanks again for your help,
