Greylisting

Solution

You were sent here after seeing a mail of yours being rejected with a message like this:

Greylisted for a few minutes, please try again later. (see http://support.cornertechnical.com/knowledgebase.php?article=1)

The mail server generating this error message is using a system called Greylisting to filter spam and viruses. It relies on Mail Servers behaving according to the standards and usually doesn't require any action by the user. Your mails should only be delayed up to 5 or 10 minutes.

If you see this error message while sending an email, it probably means that you did something wrong: the configured mail server should trust your machine and thus not apply greylisting at all.

Make sure that you did turn on encryption and authentication for the SMTP server in your mail client. Ask your system administrator if you are not sure about how to configure it.

If you continue having problems with email, please submit a Support Ticket.
