GWIA: 450 host down...on a host that is NOT down
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...To Gwia or not to Gwia
I have 6.5.7 that is on a 10+ years box. It's time to put it to rest -
I said but the boss does not want to spend the money - heard that
It a suite using on GW and Gwava no other products. There are worried
about email failure. So I'm trying GWAVA's Reload product. It works fine
for the backup and the disaster recovery BUT you have no Gwia. Can I set
up another Netware box with just the Gwia on it and disable the main box
so that when the system fails ( and it will) we will have a email
Also is there a license issue here...Set GWIA to bypass relay host for internal mail hosts
I have recently configured my GWIA to route all my outbound mail
through a scanning/archiving service.
However any mail received for otherserver.mydomain.com (for example)
get's sent out via the relay host when the server is internal to my
Is there a way of identifying internal hosts to the GWIA so that it
bypasses the Relay Host setting and sends the mail direct to those
Will adding these hosts to foreign id do it or adding
otherserver.mydomain.com as a new domain to GroupWise?
--------------------------------------------------...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...GWIA not sending mail(450 Host down)
We had a series of NS go do and made the change to a another provider.
I've changed the DNS records to reflect the change.
I've changed the resolve.cfg file to reflect the changes.
When I run GWIA every outgoing mail has on it 450 Host down

We are running GWIA on our SLES10 server.
On inspecting logs we see that almost every email sent to external
email address the GWIA reports the following, 450 Host Down:

GWIA is displaying the following message:
DMN: MSG xxxxx Send Failure 550 Host unknown (exampledomain.com) where
examledomain is my domain. I am able to successfully send and receive
internet mail. This seems like some DNS or MX record problem. From the

Any ideas please?

Yes. The DNS server configured ony your GWIA server cannot properly

May I know whether I can have one GWIA to host multiple Internet Domain.
I will have 2 separate GroupWise system. Each GroupWise system has its'
own GWIA. The existing GWIA holding (abc.com). The new GWIA planned to
host 123.abc.com, 234.abc.com, 345.abc.com and so on. I would like to
know whether this can be done or not.

Content-Type: multipart...GWIA, RBLs, and DNS Cache Errors (Send Failure 550 Host Unknown)
Here's the issue:
I have been hard pressed to make SPAM disappear. I have used GWIA's
(v7.0.1) RBL feature to block several countries that seem to be sending
us mass amounts of unsolicited email, and it's been pretty successful.
Now, outgoing email has stopped working entirely. I know, "What does
an RBL have to do with outgoing email?" Well, the following is the
error from GWIA's verbose log:

I am reading the Groupwise upgrade guide, as we are planning to upgrade
from GW 55EP2 to GW 6.x. In there, it mentions that we may not want to
upgrade right away to a 6.x GWIA, especially if we support POP3 or IMAP
clients. And it seems to indicate that the GroupWise post offices now
talk directly to a 6.x GWIA, while a 5.x GWIA always communicates through
the MTA. Can someone explain to me the differences in the GWIA's so we
can deploy our GW upgrade without surprises? We have a single GroupWise
domain, Single GWIA, Single MTA, and 8 post offices distributed on ...GWIA

During the GroupWise (6.5) Internet Agent installation it asks for the to
choose on the Relay Host scren if you want to send outbound mail directly or
use a relay host. My question is can you choose to send directly and then
later configure GW to use a relay host if one chooses to.
Thanks for all your help....I really do appreciate it.

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:
