Factors Responsible For Getting Exchange Error 450 4.7.1
- Sometimes admin sets the limitation on the number of emails, which the user may send. Now, if the user exceeds that limit then it is possible that the user may get this error as mentioned:
“450 4.7.1 Recipient address rejected: Policy Rejection- Quota Exceeded”
- Users may also encounter this error during sending an email from some particular domains. This is because the server discards the email, which has been sent from any of these domains.
“450 4.7.1 Client host rejected: cannot find your reverse hostname”
- If Exchange server is unable to search out the sender of an email or unable to locate the hostname, then the error of Exchange 450 4.7.1 occurred. This display that server cannot find out the reverse hostname. In such cases, the server executes the reverse look up, to find out the actual address from where the email has been sent.
Important Note: Reverse DNS lookup locate Domain Name, which is associated with IP address via DNS of internet.
- It is possible that users will receive this error when they send the email to those email addresses that are blocked by the Server.
“450 4.7.1 Recipient address rejected: Access denied”
- If the IP address from where the email has been sent does not have the PTR (also known as pointer record) record, then this will become the reason behind the generation of the error. The PTR record is needed for mapping IP to a hostname in the reverse DNS.
Resolution of Exchange Error 450 4.7.1
- At the time, an IP address sends any link or data that is spam, then commonly that IP address is blocked by the Server. Now, to rectify the issue, there is a need to eliminate the IP address from the blacklist of the server.
- Users can contact the internet service provider to have the PTR record in their IP address.
- The records of Domain of DNS must be accurately set up & users should examine the mail server configuration.
- Users must set up the reverse DNS with Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN).They may contact ISP for generating FQDN, which should always end up with applicable domain name.
