This question already has an answer here:
I've got a ISPconfig 3 production server set up, running Ubuntu Server 9.04. My e-mail gets delivered ok to almost every other server I send mail to except for one (smtp.chello.nl which bounces my email). In my
/var/log/mail.err I found the below error.
Sep 23 08:59:33 <MYHOSTNAME> postfix/smtp: 3DB2B1456149: to=<<RECIPIENT>@chello.nl>, relay=smtp.chello.nl[126.96.36.199]:25, delay=2, delays=0.02/0.01/1.9/0.04, dsn=5.1.0, status=bounced (host smtp.chello.nl[188.8.131.52] said: 550 5.1.0 Dynamic/Generic hostnames are blocked. Please contact your Email Provider. Your IP was <MY IP>. Your hostname was ??. (in reply to MAIL FROM command))
What could be the cause of this?
I did an SMTP check on mxtools.com and got the following:
OK - Not an open relay
OK - 0 seconds - Good on Connection time
OK - 1.482 seconds - Good on Transaction time
OK - 83.161.xx.xx resolves to a83-161-xx-xx.xxx.xxx.nl
