SMTP Error Codes

SMTP Error Codes:

   The class sub-code provides a broad classification of the status.

   The enumerated values the class are defined as:

    2.X.X   Success

       Success specifies that the DSN is reporting a positive delivery

       action.  Detail sub-codes may provide notification of

       transformations required for delivery.

    4.X.X   Persistent Transient Failure

       A persistent transient failure is one in which the message as

       sent is valid, but some temporary event prevents the successful

       sending of the message.  Sending in the future may be successful.

    5.X.X   Permanent Failure

       A permanent failure is one which is not likely to be resolved by

       resending the message in the current form.  Some change to the

       message or the destination must be made for successful delivery.
