"Too many connections" appears in InterScan Messaging Security Virtual Appliance (IMSVA)

Summary

Some providers, such as Orange, Wanadoo, and Oléane, limit the number of simultaneous connections into their servers to prevent transformation of any random machine to a spambot. Thus, you cannot send mails. The emails are queued in IMSVA and the following error message shows:

Host <Service Provider's MTA> refused to talk to me: 421 .... Too many connections, slow down.

Public

As a result, only authorized providers (Orange, Free.fr, 9Tel, and other main foreign providers) can send more than the limit.

To avoid this limitation, use the mail server from your provider as a relay/smarthost for the domains:

  1. Navigate to Administration > IMSVA configuration > SMTP Routing > Domain-based Delivery.
  2. Add the following:
    • Destination domain
    • Mail server of your provider (FQDN or IP)
    • Related port, which is normally port 25
