Your Secure Certificate may not actually be very secure

October 24, 2014

September 19, 2012
We have had a client report an intermittent mail issue where their email was being bounced with a 5.7.1 error. We host around 10 email accounts for this client, but only act as a pass-through POP - as email is redirected to Gmail servers. The reported issue was that every few months or so, three of the ten email addresses would start bouncing email back from our server with a 5.7.1 error. Post fix mail logs weren't very helpful since 5.7.1...
