I suspect you are correct in this. It depends on what SMTPDirect sees
in the return from the SMTP transaction, but the smtp-failure log
messages seem to say it just sees the connection loss.

You could try setting


in mm_cfg.py. This will cause each user's delivery to be a separate
SMTP transaction with only one recipient which may avoid the 421
errors and will return the 550 errors for most if not all the bad
