Domain of sender address does not exist (But it does)

  1. Default Domain of sender address does not exist (But it does)

    Hello:

    I am using the stock sendmail 8.13.5-3 sendmail installed with Fedora
    Core 5.

    When one of my clients tries to send me an email, I get this error in
    the mail log:
    Mar 21 16:35:07 jamm6 sendmail[10792]: l2LLZ57S010792:
    ruleset=check_rcpt, arg1=<neil@JAMMConsulting.com>,
    relay=smtp132.iad.emailsrvr.com [207.97.245.132], reject=553 5.1.8
    <neil@JAMMConsulting.com>... Domain of sender address
    K.Izer@IslandSurf.com does not exist

    Doing:
    dig mx IslandSurf.com

    Gives me:
    ;; ANSWER SECTION:
    IslandSurf.com. 3372 IN MX 20 mx2.emailsrvr.com.
    IslandSurf.com. 3372 IN MX 10 mx1.emailsrvr.com.

    ;; ADDITIONAL SECTION:
    mx1.emailsrvr.com. 825 IN A 207.97.245.101

    The domain does resolve. Why is sendmail rejecting this message?

    Are you doing that lookup from the mail server?

    Trace DNS queries your sendmail asks and answers it gets.

    Version for FEATURE(`delay_checks')
    echo 'checkmail JohnDoe@JAMMConsulting.com' | sendmail -d8.20 -bt
    Version for configuration without FEATURE(`delay_checks'):

    I tried adding:

    to submit.mc as well and restarted sendmail to no avail either.

    As *temporary* fix you can use FEATURE(`domaintable') with the following
    entry in domaintable:

    IslandSurf.com %0.

    The trailing dot above *is important*.

    So, this is a new form of AAAA brokenness, that sendmail doesn't have a
    workaround for AFAIK: The server says that the *name* doesn't exist,
    with a NXDOMAIN response - can be verified with 'dig':

    $ dig aaaa IslandSurf.com @lb1.ahphosting.net
    ....
    ;; Got answer:
    ;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NXDOMAIN, id: 29685
    ;; flags: qr aa rd; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 0, AUTHORITY: 6, ADDITIONAL: 3

    The proper response if there are no AAAA records is this:

    $ dig aaaa sendmail.org @ns1.sendmail.org
    ....
    ;; Got answer:
    ;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 42284
    ;; flags: qr aa rd; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 0, AUTHORITY: 1, ADDITIONAL: 0

    which means "there are no AAAA records but there may be other records".
    Sendmail's WorkAroundBrokenAAAA deals with another AAAA problem, where
    the server gets all confused and doesn't respond at all, or responds
    with a SERVFAIL or similar - this is interpreted as a temporary failure
    which causes other problems.

    If you have any influence on that domain, you would do them a favour by
    trying to get them to fix this. If not, and you absolutely need to
    communicate with them, one of Andrzej's suggestions will probably work -
    another alternative is to disable AAAA lookups entirely, but this
    requires recompiling sendmail without NETINET6 defined IIRC. (Actually
    just building from the source tarball will do this on most OSes I
    believe.)

  10. Default Re: Domain of sender address does not exist (But it does)

    Per:

    > Sendmail's WorkAroundBrokenAAAA deals with another AAAA problem


    I think we need to request sendmail to enhance their
    WorkAroundBrokenAAAA processing
    to include this case.

    What do you think?

    Thanks,
    Neil
