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'm getting 450 host down errors from one particular site.
I've used the gwip and tested the mx connectivity and it does connect, but very slowly. I can alos connect froma workstation, again, the response time back from the foreign server is slow.
Is there a GWIA setting/timeout that controls how long the GWIA should wait before declaring the host down with a 450 error?

I'm getting 450 host down errors from one part...GWIA can recieve from a host, but not send to the same host
Ok, this sounds like a DNS problem, but I'm a little confused, this is
what is happening:
-The host I am trying to send mail to is optonline.net
-The server cannot ping this host, however, it can ping www.optonline.net
-The GWIA can RECEIVE mail from firstname.lastname@example.org, but it cannot SEND
-If I use a basic e-mail client (like MS Outlook), I can sent to
-I can type optonline.net in my browser (which uses BorderManager located
on the same server as the GWIA) and be connected to the host
-I tried sending and receiving mail to us...450 host down (mydomain) on GWIA
Can somebody explain how I am getting these. Everything seems to be
working. Mail is entering and exiting. I only have one PO, which is on
another machine, so I'm not sure why I am getting these at the GWIA. I
am assuming that internal mail should not make it to the GWIA. I am
getting mail from the internet in my mailbox so how can it say the host
is down. What host is it talking about?
Do you have the entries for both servers in the HOSTS file? This is
important to GWIA.

Most of these are from <> ie null sender.
Inbound mail from other domains (ie the internet at large) seems ok.
Outbound mail to other domains is likewise ok.

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.

We are experiencing errors on the GWIA agent, when sending emails to

I'm getting a 450 Host Down message on GWIA only when sending to 1

I tried creating a Route.cfg with the ip address up the remote domain and
still got the same condition.

We are struggling with a DNS related issue.....
GWIA can't ping outside of our firewall or our outside DNS. We can
resolve gmail.com and others from a ping. We can ping other servers
inside our firewall. Tried several TIDs and resolv.cfg is fine, there
is no /mh switch on GWIA.

Are you having outbound only problems? Is it all email or just some email?

We have a groupwise 7.x system that is installed on windows 2000. The
former tech had installed two NICS on a windows 2000 system one with a
private ip address and the other NIC with a public ip address which was
the registered IP for our domain. We have decided to move our server
inside of a firewall. Now the public ip address is actually the
Sonicwall firewall public ip address and we are port forwarding port 25
and port 110. The mail server now has only one NIC which is the private
internal ip address. Internal mail works fine and we can receive
external email too. GWIA just will ...GWIA All Hosts Down
I have no idea at this point what could possibly have happened, but my
gwia 6.0.3 began returning all outgoing mail with a host down (450)
message. This started several days ago with the only related even I can
think of was the sending of a broadcats email message to approx. 1,100
bcc recipients 5 days ago. Clearly some received the message (though I
have no way of know how many at this point), yet just as clearly hundreds
did not because of the 450 host down response. What I don know for
certain is that for the past two days no email messages are being sent
out with all havi...
