    One of my customers is having an issue with email sent from a MS Office distribution group. After a couple of days they will get a email from MS saying that the emails failed to send.
    The email says:



    At the bottom of the email it displays this for every email that did not get sent:

    Code:
    12/4/2015 6:24:25 PM - Server at DM3PR1001MB1183.namprd10.prod.outlook.com returned '550 4.4.7 QUEUE.Expired; message expired'
    12/4/2015 6:03:38 PM - Server at mail.ourserver.com (our IP) returned '450 4.4.318 Connection was closed abruptly'
    
    I have looked through the exim log and found entries like this many times:

    Code:

    Anyone have any idea what the problem is or how to fix?

    Hello :)

    This issue likely stems from the following option under the "ACL Options" tab in "WHM Home » Service Configuration » Exim Configuration Manager":

    "Introduce a delay into the SMTP transaction for unknown hosts and messages detected as spam"

    Per it's description:

    The SMTP receiver will wait a few additional seconds for a connection when it detects spam messages in order to reduce inbound spam. The system excludes the following remote hosts from the delay: Neighbor IP addresses in the same netblock, Loopback addresses, Trusted Mail Hosts, Relay Hosts, Backup MX Hosts, Skip SMTP Checks Host, Sender Verify Bypass Hosts, and Greylist Trusted Hosts.


    Does the issue persist if you temporarily disable this option, or add the Outlook IP addresses to the trusted mail hosts list?

    Thank you.
