What’s Causing This SMTP Error 452 In Your Servers? (in pointers)

SMTP 452 error in phpmailer can occur due to:

  • Server overload: The mail server is currently processing a high volume of incoming email traffic, temporarily rejecting new connections or delaying email delivery to manage the load effectively.
  • Resource constraints: Limited server resources (e.g., CPU, memory, disk space) restrict new email deliveries temporarily to manage resource allocation efficiently.
  • Greylisting: Some mail servers employ greylisting as an anti-spam technique, initially rejecting emails from unknown senders with a 452 error. Legitimate senders retry delivery after a delay, and the email is accepted.

How to Resolve SMTP Error 452 - Step-by-Step Solution

To address this email smtp error 452 in Jenkins servers, follow these steps:

  • Wait and retry: Since SMTP Error 452 is temporary, wait and retry sending the email later. The receiving server may resolve its temporary constraints, allowing successful delivery.
  • Check for greylisting: If suspecting greylisting, waiting and retrying the email should resolve the issue upon acceptance by the receiving server.
  • Investigate resource constraints: If you have control over the receiving server, investigate and address any resource constraints causing the error.
