Exception Connecting to 000.000.000.000 (ID XX)

E-Mail

In the example below, the server on which SmarterMail is hosted cannot connect to the IP ADDRESS of the MX server which was obtained in the initial DNS lookup of the receiving MX server and logs that situation.

It then changes to another available IP address on the LOCAL NIC CARD in an attempt to connect to the address, trying to save the message send for the client who is sending the message, and, once again, cannot connect, so it aborts the try altogether because the REMOTE IP ADDRESS to which SmarterMail is supposed to send the message is not accepting connections.

This is NOT a SmarterMail error, but is an error with the NETWORK at the FAR end.
