Delivery to recipients has been delayed.

By mike ·
I receive "Delivery to the following recipients has been delayed" from my exchange server whenever I try to email to any Yahoo email address. There are NO errors, just a delay notification and 90% of the time the email never goes through. I can track my sending and it appears to leave my server but it leaves me lost in space as for a reason or what happens that causes this. I have asked Yahoo and they first said it was possibly a glitch on their side but later told me the problem must be mine. I am lost for a solution because no errors or daemons, exccept for the delay notice and that once in a while the email goes through.

often a delay like this is dns related. Things you can try is:
*traceroute to the yahoo mailserver you are trying to send to
*test ping response to mailserver
*telnet to port 25 on the mailserver and test out your smtp connection with the mailserver
*can you post a full header of one of your delayed emails?
*check using ethereal (the windows version) when you send to the mailserver to see where the traffic is stalled.

Email Delivery Problem

by somayekh In reply to

Hi guys,

I have the same problem with all our outgoing emails. We have a Internet Mail SMTP Connector and today I got this problem and when I try to force connection after some time the status change from active to retry. Before this I got an error regarding DNS event log. Is this problem something related DNS? Please expand your answer. Thanks

Did Yahoo blackhole you as a spammer?

They've been known to do that based on the amount of SPAM that is being reported by users.
