In order to understand MaxBulk Mailer "Connection logs" you need to read RFC 821 (Request for Comments 821). It is a technical memo about SMTP protocol implementation. (SMTP stands for SIMPLE MAIL TRANSFER PROTOCOL).
SMTP protocol is a text protocol where a SMTP client (MaxBulk Mailer) talks to a SMTP server. Basically this conversation looks like this (This example shows how the client connects, send the sender data, then the recipient data and finally the message itself):
220 SU-SCORE.ARPA Simple Mail Transfer Service Ready
450 User not active now
354 Start mail input; end with <CRLF>.<CRLF>
Blah blah blah...
...etc. etc. etc.
221 SU-SCORE.ARPA Service closing transmission channel
MaxBulk sends commands like:
HELO <domain> RCPT TO: <forward-path> DATA SEND FROM: <reverse-path> QUIT
The server always answer with a 3-digits code and a message. For example:
System status, or system help reply
<domain> Service ready
<domain> Service closing transmission channel
Requested mail action okay, completed
User not local; will forward to <forward-path>
and if an error occurs, the server message always starts with a 4xx or 5xx code like:
<domain> Service not available, closing transmission channel
Requested mail action not taken: mailbox unavailable
Requested action aborted: local error in processing
Requested action not taken: insufficient system storage
Syntax error, command unrecognized
Syntax error in parameters or arguments
Command not implemented
Bad sequence of commands
Command parameter not implemented
Requested action not taken: mailbox unavailable
User not local; please try <forward-path>
Requested mail action aborted: exceeded storage allocation
Requested action not taken: mailbox name not allowed
