qmail deferred error???
Can anyone tell me if I need to disregard this email? I'm using qmail by the way.
Here is the error:
Connected to 22.214.171.124 but greeting failed
Remote host said: 421 message from (x.x.x.x) temporarily deferred -4.16.50. Please refer to (yahoo site/defer.html)
I'm not going to try again; this message has been in the queue too long.
From what I understand, this means that this email is being delayed or not delivered and will retry. My queuelifetime is 28800 meaning 8 hours (am i correct). So, can anyone tell me if this is normal in qmail and just wait to retry?
I'm so sorry I'm newbie in network admninistration. Just need a confirmation and any suggestion to expert people around here
