Hi,

Maybe this have come up before on this list, but I can not figure out
why SIMS 1.8b8 is sending an error 472 to a spammer, while it is
blacklisted? The problem is this spammer keeps coming back now for a
week every 5 minutes!

Looks like 127.0.0.2-127.0.0.4 is not in your blacklist host list.



Yes, I have 127.0.0.2-127.0.0.255 in the blacklist. The strange thing is my mail server said:

11:35:35 1 SMTP-070([195.167.26.20]) SPAM? Host is blacklisted per RBL relays.mail-abuse.org with result [127.0.0.2]

But instead of sending an error 5xx being blacklisted, it goes on with:

11:35:36 4 SMTP-070(miltos.smart-holidays.com.gr) Input Line: MAIL From:<emailingswork@postd.com>\r
11:36:05 4 SMTP-070(miltos.smart-holidays.com.gr) No relay exists for 'postd.com'
11:36:05 4 SMTP-070(miltos.smart-holidays.com.gr) Looking for postd.com
11:36:35 3 SMTP-070(miltos.smart-holidays.com.gr) Return-Path-A Search Error. Error Code=-3162
11:36:35 4 SMTP-070(miltos.smart-holidays.com.gr) Sending 472 <emailingswork@postd.com> cannot be verified now\r\n


Is this a bug in SIMS or is there another reason why SIMS does this?
