601 is a generic error message.  An item to check is login to the server that SmarterMail is installed on and try to telnet to the IP address and see if you get a 220 response.  If you do not this could be network related or the IP address your telneting from may be blocked on the receiving end.  If you can telnet verify if the IP address that SmarterMail is sending from is the same IP address you used when doing the test.

I get this periodically, but on investigating the logs it is always (or one of its aliases) on the other end. I have been recommending that my domain users make sure our outgoing Smartermail server is in their SPF record.
Today I got it for our primary domain, which most definitely does have our outgoing server in its SPF record.  See this lengthy log extract:
I cannot find our outgoing IP on any blacklists; our rDNS and EHLO banner match the dns, What else could cause google to reject this? And in such an unfriendly manner -- saying "Go ahead" and then disconnecting when we do?

Chinmay, Your IP is blacklisted with one of the hundreds of Blacklist. The reason why you are not able to send email to specific IP is the recipient is using a specific blacklist which may not be common. Check on mxtoolbox. regards, Rishikesh Somshetti NetGains Technologies Pvt Ltd., Making iT Simple CIOReview - Company of the Month!

Follow and check below item and your prob is solved 100%

1- check your domain or IP to be unblocked by spam checking website, the powerful website in this range is Barracuda'
2- Try to test SMTP OUT by Telnet command by type: telnet IP port ( mostly 25 or 2525)
3- Get details about your PTR on the main domain you defined on Smartermail or etc mail server software
4- Contact to your ISP to check to open the specific port 25) -------> this may be done at first step and all solve by doing this
details: may your ISP get changes on Microtic config upon your router

having the same issue with this domain getting 601 to from
from my mail server on 
Can SOA refresh or SOA Number format cause issues?
The reverse is fine but using mail.idcmailserver in SMTP setting... will that cause issues with the reverse?

When you attempt to send an email through Smartermail, we first perform an MX lookup on the domain to determine what server to hand the email off to. If this lookup fails we may not be able to deliver successfully, and so I recommend checking your DNS server settings under Settings>General. You can test temporarily by adding these to your configuration:

Google DNS 1:
Google DNS 2:

Most mail is working. But did check.... there are no DNS settings for Primary or secondary only hostname and Postmaster Mailbox. It has always been like that and working. Is there a default it is using?
I did read the help file on this and it says its recommended to be left blank. Would it be better to add a DNS server for primary and secondary?
