#1: Domain of sender address does not exist (But it does)

Posted on 2007-03-21 23:00:39 by Neil Aggarwal

Hello:

I am using the stock sendmail 8.13.5-3 sendmail installed with Fedora
Core 5.

When one of my clients tries to send me an email, I get this error in
the mail log:
Mar 21 16:35:07 jamm6 sendmail[10792]: l2LLZ57S010792:

<neil@JAMMConsulting.com>... Domain of sender address
K.Izer@IslandSurf.com does not exist

Doing:
dig mx IslandSurf.com

Gives me:
;; ANSWER SECTION:
IslandSurf.com. 3372 IN MX 20 mx2.emailsrvr.com.
IslandSurf.com. 3372 IN MX 10 mx1.emailsrvr.com.

;; ADDITIONAL SECTION:
mx1.emailsrvr.com. 825 IN A 207.97.245.101

The domain does resolve. Why is sendmail rejecting this message?

Are you doing that lookup from the mail server?

Trace DNS queries your sendmail asks and answers it gets.

Version for FEATURE(`delay_checks')
echo 'checkmail JohnDoe@JAMMConsulting.com' | sendmail -d8.20 -bt
Version for configuration without FEATURE(`delay_checks'):

I have define(`confBIND_OPTS', `WorkAroundBrokenAAAA')dnl
in my sendmail.mc file. I also checked my sendmail.cf and it has
this:
O ResolverOptions=WorkAroundBrokenAAAA

Doing this command:

echo 'checkmail K.Izer@IslandSurf.com' | sendmail -d8.20 -bt

I tried adding:

As *temporary* fix you can use FEATURE(`domaintable') with the following
entry in domaintable:

IslandSurf.com %0.

The trailing dot above *is important*.

I did that, but when I do the sendmail test, I still get a domain of

[sorry for giving "second fresh" advices]

Another *temporary* fix to try:

LOCAL_CONFIG
CPIslandSurf.com

About permanent fix:
What type of DNS server serves the domain?

So, this is a new form of AAAA brokenness, that sendmail doesn't have a
workaround for AFAIK: The server says that the *name* doesn't exist,
with a NXDOMAIN response - can be verified with 'dig':

$ dig aaaa IslandSurf.com @lb1.ahphosting.net
....
;; Got answer:
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NXDOMAIN, id: 29685
;; flags: qr aa rd; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 0, AUTHORITY: 6, ADDITIONAL: 3

The proper response if there are no AAAA records is this:

$ dig aaaa sendmail.org @ns1.sendmail.org
....
;; Got answer:
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 42284
;; flags: qr aa rd; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 0, AUTHORITY: 1, ADDITIONAL: 0

which means "there are no AAAA records but there may be other records".
Sendmail's WorkAroundBrokenAAAA deals with another AAAA problem, where
the server gets all confused and doesn't respond at all, or responds
with a SERVFAIL or similar - this is interpreted as a temporary failure
which causes other problems.

If you have any influence on that domain, you would do them a favour by
trying to get them to fix this. If not, and you absolutely need to
communicate with them, one of Andrzej's suggestions will probably work -
another alternative is to disable AAAA lookups entirely, but this
requires recompiling sendmail without NETINET6 defined IIRC. (Actually
just building from the source tarball will do this on most OSes I
believe.)

Per:

I think we need to request sendmail to enhance their
WorkAroundBrokenAAAA processing
to include this case.

What do you think?
