Resolution

Error message:

Hi. This is the qmail-send program at mail.domain.tld. I'm afraid I wasn't able to deliver your message to the following addresses. This is a permanent error; I've given up. Sorry it didn't work out.

<user@domain.tld>: TLS connect failed; connected to 192.168.1.1. I'm not going to try again; this message has been in the queue too long.

Qmail uses TLS (an SSL connection) to send mail. If the destination SMTP server doesn't support TLS, you get the error listed above. You can test if the server supports TLS with the following command:

    # telnet 192.168.1.2 25
Trying 192.168.1.2...
Connected to 192.168.1.1.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 mail.domain.tld ESMTP
ehlo
250-mail.domain.tld
250-AUTH=LOGIN CRAM-MD5 PLAIN
250-AUTH LOGIN CRAM-MD5 PLAIN
250-STARTTLS
250-PIPELINING
250 8BITMIME

250-STARTTLS means that the TLS connection is supported.
