Error 450 Host Down on GWIA
We are experiencing errors on the GWIA agent, when sending emails to
domains. Apparently, the problem is related to higher priority Mail
(MX) hosts not responding to requests of the GWIA as explained in
support TID number 100534469
"This problem has been reported to development.
Customer can either install the non-enhancement pack GW 5.5.2 GWIA or

Do you have a e-mail firewall system such as Proofpoint in place? We have
this happen when our firewall is having problems such as rebooting for
the coninuous updates that it receives from the vendor or an influx of
spam. Ususally the GroupWise "Agents/gwia/defer" directory will start
collecting items in it and that tells us that the mail is not going
through the firewall system. We then check our firewall box and 95% of
the time it is having a problem.
I hope this helps in your case.

i'm getting an annoying 450 host down error on my GWIA. We sent some
important emails and we didn't notice they were not going out until
later. Then we checked and we were having 450 host down on that host.
Some time ago we used to experience this very same problem, but then
stopped (couldn't say exactly what we did, since I was not in charge
communications back then)
Obviously, I did a telnet on port 25 to the mail exchanger of the
problematic domain. It was up and running.
What could be causing this behaviour? How can I solve this probl...GWIA one linux: 450 Host down error
I'm having problems getting the GWIA to work. Internal communications
with groupwise 7.0 works, but it can not
communicate out to the net and messages can not come in.
This is a new OES1 Linux server running Groupwise 7.0
when trying to send out, in the gwia log I get:
BBO Queuing deferred message ....
BB0 DMN: MSG 151 Send Failure: 450 Host down ([ipaddress])
If I set the /mh to the outside mail server's host name or domain name
instead of the ip address I get a:
450 MX lookup failure ([hostname])
However, I am able to "telnet [ipaddr] 25"...Gwia 6.5 450 Host down Error
I've been noticing an odd "450 Host Down" error on GWIA. The odd thing
about it is that it is generating this error on my own domain which is
alive and well. It seems to be happening when someone using a groupwise
account attempts to send to another groupwise user using
firstname.lastname@example.org rather than the groupwise address book.
Any thoughts or suggestions as to what might be wrong? We're running GW
6.5.0 on an NW 6.5 SP1
Thanks in advance.

I have GW, BorderManager,Gwava. I'm getting 450 host down

I have two GWIA's. These are my MX records

We have the remote clients use the setting smtp.worldimpact.org for both
POP and SMTP services. Gwava is on the mail.worldimpact.org server.
The .123 service stalls sometimes so we moved the remote clients using

Recently I noticed a lot of Host Down instances according to the stats
on the GWIA web interface. With 3 days of uptime the numbers were 216
"sent" email and 560 "host down".
Further checks revealed this sort of error in the logs:

I am new to Groupwise and am trying to set it up. Netware 6.0 SP4 on all
servers, BM 3.7 latest patches running proxy and filtering, Groupwise 6 SP4.
I have the system setup and could yesterday send email messages back and
forth inside of my network but not to or from the outside world.
I then installed the GWIA and had three errors. One was not assigning a
postmaster - taken care of. The other two were "No relay host connectivity
from target server" and "Invalid or unspecified Internet Host name" - I
think that I took care of this one by filling in the Foreign ID ...GWIA

I have GW 701. Today, the server can't send any email to two domains
(sympatico.ca and txt.bellmobility.ca) and getting error "450 Host down".
However, I was able to send email to both domain with hotmail. I tested the
connection and MX OK between my GW server and the two domains with GWIP.NLM.
Since I am able to send email with other system, it looks like the problem
is on my server. However, I have no idea where to look at. Could anyone
