Some emails remain in the delivery queue and show a 451 error in the delivery queue view of the Control Center Message Queues view.
Symptoms Emails remain in the delivery queue with an SMTP error code of one of:
451 4.4.2 [internal] no banner 451 4.4.2 [internal] no BODY response 451 4.4.2 [internal] no RSET response
The Symantec Messaging Gateway (SMG) connects to the downstream server successfully, but does not receive a response. SMG considers this a successful connection with a transient failure in delivery and will continue to attempt to send to the problematic MX record.
To work around this behavior
Verify the target MTA is not responding to the Messaging Gateway Appliance
Do one of the following: - Create a delivery domain record in the Control Center - Forward all outbound mail to another local mail server for external delivery
To verify the target MTA is not responding:to the Messaging Gateway Appliance
Perform an MX lookup for the domain.
Perform a telnet test connection to the SMTP port of the primary MX record IP address.
Verify that no response is returned.

Click on Protocols.
Click on Domains.
Click on Add.
Enter the recipient domain.
In the Acceptance tab, uncheck the "Local domain" tick box.
In the Delivery tab, check the "Optionally route this domain or email address" tick box.
