    Mass mailing host_lookup_failed

    I'm trying to send a mass mailing to around 50.000 people, as of now, about 70% returns in the exim mail queue with the following header at the top.

    Code:
    mailnull 47 12
    <bounce@domain.com>
    1244115246 0
    -helo_name www.example.com
    -host_address 222.21.147.57.38441 (fake)
    -host_auth fixed_login
    -interface_address 222.21.147.57.25 (fake)
    -received_protocol esmtpa
    -body_linecount 219
    -max_received_linelength 108
    -auth_id info@domain.com
    -deliver_firsttime
    -host_lookup_failed
    XX
    1
    The problem is in the host_lookup_failed part.

    If you know you can help, please let me know, and I'll send you the real ip addresses and domains, I don't want this to show up publicy.

    Thanks!

    The lookup can fail when the remote server fails, the named server on your server fails , there can be many reasons for the same. Do check the server logs for this time as well, and do make sure that the email limit per hour is not set too. But mailing 50000 per sec , would be an enormous value I guess.
