Sendmail and Available STMP Services?
I am playing a long shot here. I worked in IT for years and when I
retired I installed sendmail on a Slackware server with my own domain
name for me (Alpine) and my wife (Outlook) to use. It has allowed me to
do a lot of nice things such as an email account for each vendor I deal
with (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org) and temporary email accounts. They both
come in handy when figuring out how a spammer obtained my email address
and they also allow me to easily delete an account without affecting my

I was looking into some mail not arriving on a sendmail-8.13.0 machine.
From several other hosts, telnetting to port 25 results in 421 SMTP
service not available, closing transmission channel But mail is
arriving... I can't tell if this response is only given to some IP
addresses (why? and why ones I test from, but not most "real" mail
servers?), or what.

The smtp.wanadoo.fr address is quite likely for inbound mail only. You
should contact support at wanadoo and ask for the hostname of the
outbound servers. It may be the same address but if so chances are
excellent they will also want you to use authentication.

We have just set up a Windows 2003 Server with Oracle 9i.
We are trying to use UTL_SMTP in a PL/SQL procedure to send an email

and we get
ORA-29278: SMTP transient error: 421 Service not available
We also checked a Java application (outside of Oracle) on the same
server that does a send mail and it also can not connect to the Mail
*However*, Outlook express on the same server to the same mail server
address does work. This tends to rule out the mail server and any
firewall as causing the problem...?
The PL/SQL procedure is correct as it was copied from another server
that sends emails. It seems there is something on the server that
does not allow the PL/SQL or the non-Oracle java application to
connect to the mail server but does allow Outlook Express to connect
to the mail server. Any ideas what to check?
