Hey guys,

I have a curious case here which is a user sending emails using the google output server, which is being denied by my server. The error that is logged is:

Nov 16 18:36:48 srv04 postfix/cleanup[19091]: 5C1F31F8007D: discard: header From: =?UTF-8?Q?Andr=C3=A9_Luis_Vieira?= <andre....@kkk.kkk.kk> from mail -ua1-x92e.google.com[2607:f8b0:4864:20::92e]; from=<andre....@kkk.kkk.kk> to=<sergio....@xxxxxx.xxx.xx> proto=ESMTP helo=<mail-ua1-x92e.google.com>

The email is not arriving at the destination, and an "error" is not being returned to the origin of the email. I did a test on the swan and got the following negotiation:

csjunior@server01:~$ swaks --to csju...@xxxxxxxx.xxx.xx --from andre....@kkk.kkk.kk --server mail.xxxxxxxx.xxx.xx --header 'From: =?UTF-8 ?Q?Andr=C3=A9_Luis_Vieira?= <andre....@kkk.kkk.kk>'

What can be done to resolve this? Is it a source or destination error?

Note: in order to protect the users, I put a mask over the domain names. Fighting against spam sucks!

Thanks

The log message above suggests that the header_checks access file
contains a DISCARD entry which matches that "From" header.
