Comcast blocking AWS, Digital Ocean emails?

Re: Comcast blocking AWS, Digital Ocean emails?

@ComcastAntiSpam  Thank you for getting mail flowing to comcast.net addresses from IP 45.55.238.90.  However, I'm seeing aggressive ratelimiting for any messages that happen to have 3 or more comcast.net recipients:

 

421 4.1.0 45.55.238.90 Throttled - try again later. Please see http://postmaster.comcast.net/smtp-error-codes.php#RL000001

 

Greylisting like this is understandable, however these messages seem to never deliver despite multiple attempts and eventually just fail and bounce back to the sender.  Simply lowering delivery retry timeout as suggested at http://postmaster.comcast.net/smtp-error-codes.php#RL000001 has no effect.  However, if I remove a recipient or 2 from such messages, so only 2 comcast.net recipients are on the message, it delivers fine.  Likewise messages with 1 or 2 recipients with comcast.net addresses always deliver fine.

 

The server at IP 45.55.238.90 is a private mailserver with very low traffic.  Messages with 3 or more comcast.net recipients are rare, but they do occur a couple times a month or so.  In short, these are private correspondences between small groups of friends that hit Reply All.

 

Is there any way you can ratelimit IP 45.55.238.90 less aggressively?  Maximum number of comcast.net recipients for messages from this IP really shouldn't exceed 4, and that only happens a couple times a month.

 

If there is anything you can do to help further it would be appreciated.

@natenate19 I'll take a closer look, it shouldn't be operating like that.  I've given you an override for a bit to try to help train the systems involved.  Let us know if you continue to see issues.

I'm having the same issue.  Where would I post my domains and email server IP that's secure?
