I am confused when you say "it is breaking the SMTP connection without sending any message back"
Emails are sent to a recipient without any form of response being required, so unless I have misunderstood what you have said, this makes no sense to me.
As for the possible reasons you have given, very helpful.
The thing is, the script works just fine for all other messages it receives, including messages produced by the same piece of software that the offending 'sender' uses, which in my mind would negate all of those reasons, would it not?
Sorry I have not explained things clearly.
In my group, aircraft logs are posted using a variety of different software.
One of the members of that group is an email address that I have 'attached' a script to. A script, that when it receives any emails, it extracts the data contained and puts it into a database.
No message is automatically sent back, although a sender does have the option to receive one if they so wish. In this case they do not wish it.
I have put some error trapping into my script, by sending myself a copy of the message as soon as it receives it. I receive copies of all messages sent, EXCEPT the one that bounces, which in my mind implies that the message is not being received by my mail server, which makes sense if that message is bouncing.
Hope that clears things up and sorry for the confusion
