E-mail problems with "plunder2"?


#1

We’ve been having seriously flaky e-mail performance since well into last week. Symptoms have varied – sometimes able to send, but not receive, sometimes vice versa.

Yesterday, we started to receive bounce notices like this:

Reporting-MTA: dns; plunder2.dreamhost.com
X-Postfix-Queue-ID: 18382125B81
X-Postfix-Sender: rfc822; user@domain.com
Arrival-Date: Wed, 26 Oct 2005 16:58:45 -0700 (PDT)

Final-Recipient: rfc822; user--domain.com@plunder2.dreamhost.com
Original-Recipient: rfc822; user@domain.com
Action: failed
Status: 5.0.0
Diagnostic-Code: X-Postfix; Command died with status 1: “/dh/bin/autorespond.pl
user@domain.com

Can anyone parse that for me? Is this somehow related to our autoresponders?

And then just now, started getting “server not responding” errors. It’s not a DNS problem or anything. We can hit the server fine. It’s just that the connection is immediately dropped at that end. Voila:

user% telnet mail.domain.com 110
Trying 66.33.213.158…
Connected to mail.domain.com.
Escape character is ‘^]’.
Connection closed by foreign host.

Is anyone else noticing the same kinds of things, or is it just us?
