Emails sent to verizon.net addresses bouncing

Every time my RT generates an email to a verizon.net email address, I get
the following bounce code:

450 Requested mail action not taken

This only happens with Verizon, no other domains have any trouble with my
RT emails whatsoever.

Has anyone else experienced this type of issue with Verizon? Anyone have
any ideas as to what might cause it? I’m perfectly willing to explore the
thought that I have something misconfigured, but it just seems weird that I
only have problems with Verizon addresses.

<<< 450 Requested mail action not taken-Try later:sv16pub.verizon.net
xxxxx@verizon.net… Deferred: 450 Requested mail action not taken-Try

The “try again later” seems like crap though, because I can try all I want
to no avail.

I just tested sending an email manually and didn’t have a problem. So it
would seem that the problem lies somewhere in my configuration.From: Patrick Morris [mailto:pmorris@hermesinfotech.com]

Any 400-series error is generally temporary. Is there anything else to
the error, or just the one line? Can you manually send mail to the same
Verizon addresses?

Ah, perfect then, that is my answer. My RT system only allows inbound SMTP
connections from our main relay, so that is the problem. I’ll open up 25 to
the world and that should solve it.

What email address are you sending too and I can take a look? Just as an
FYI the SV servers do a sender verify against the sending smtp server
(sending server has to accept an inbound email connection as verification
before accepting) and if that fails you will not be able to send mail to
verizon.

You could also just configure the SMTP server on your RT box to use your
main relay for outgoing mail.

I think the problem might actually be with verizon. A poker site that has a
bulliten that they cant email verizon users, and asking them to get a new
email address. It has been up for quite a while.
