Getting rsp: 550 Sender is not allowed.
Question asked by Cory Claflin - May 17 at 8:55 AM
I'm having zero luck finding a solution to this issue so I'm guessing I'm missing something obvious. Hopefully you guys can steer me in the right direction.
I have a customer receiving mail from someone using amazonses. I get the emails just fine in gmail but smartermail just rejects them. Here is an SMTP log entry:
[2018.05.16] 12:40:51 [][10306202] rsp: 220
[2018.05.16] 12:40:51 [][10306202] connected at 5/16/2018 12:40:51 PM
[2018.05.16] 12:40:51 [][10306202] cmd: EHLO
[2018.05.16] 12:40:51 [][10306202] rsp: Hello []250-SIZE 31457280250-AUTH LOGIN CRAM-MD5250-STARTTLS250-8BITMIME250 OK

Check Security / Advanced Settings / SMTP Blocking. That's the ony 550 Sender is not allowed source I know of.

Yep, that's exactly what it was. Looks like someone got a little overzealous in the spool dashboard and blocked amazonses. Thanks!!
