Subject: rejection from DNS configuration?
Date: Sat, 10 Jun 2000 20:26:06 -0400
To: <SIMS@stalker.com>
I just got this rejection:

19:27:27 4 SMTP-312([192.41.21.66]) Input Line: EHLO karlasha.2kweb.net\r
19:27:27 4 SMTP-312(karlasha.2kweb.net) Looking for karlasha.2kweb.net
19:27:27 4 SMTP-312(karlasha.2kweb.net) Sending 250-stonetics.com is pleased to meet you\r\n250-HELP\r\n250-PIPELINING\r\n250-ETRN\r\n250 EHLO\r\n
19:27:28 4 SMTP-312(karlasha.2kweb.net) Input Line: MAIL From:<0xdeadbeef-request@substance.abuse.blackdown.org>\r
19:27:28 1 SMTP-312(karlasha.2kweb.net) Return-Path-MX Search Error. Error Code=-3211
19:27:28 4 SMTP-312(karlasha.2kweb.net) Sending 572 <0xdeadbeef-request@substance.abuse.blackdown.org> cannot be accepted: DNS Error\r\n

The problem seems to be that <substance.abuse.blackdown.org> is a CNAME for <abuse.blackdown.org>, which is a CNAME for <blackdown.org>. That's unusual, and possibly illegal. Will that cause SIMS to reject the email?

Is there any way to make SIMS accept this email without disabling my spam protection?

Thanks.
