Regression in MeTA1 1.1.Alpha19.0


The enhancement to skip IP addresses of an MX server caused a regression: if a domain has multiple MX servers and the last one has multiple IPs and a transaction temporarily fails using one of those IPs then the transaction was never retried.

(2022-10-14) If an MX server has multiple IP addresses and the server temporarily rejects a message, then skip all its IP addresses and try the next MX (if available). Multiple IP addresses for the same MX will be only be tried if an SMTP session cannot be established.

A Patch is available.
