FIN PSH ACK from an outside mail server

Unanswered Question
May 30th, 2007

We are getting the following error messages on our ASA 5510 with the following information:

Inbound TCP connection denied from (yahoo mail server IP)/25 to (our outside IP)/15936 flags FIN PSH ACK on interface Outside

We also have a queue of email to yahoo accounts on our mail server. The queue does clear out eventually. Any ideas what is causing this problem and how to fix it?

I have this problem too.

It is only happening when we send emails to the yahoo email server. The port on the yahoo mail server side is 25.

how are you publishing your email server to outside..

assuming like this:

access-list out_in permit tcp any host eq smtp

access-list out_in permit tcp any host eq pop3

access-list in_out permit tcp host any eq smtp

access-list in_out permit tcp host any eq pop3

static (inside,outside) tcp 25 25 netmask

static (inside,outside) tcp 110 110 netmask

access-group out_in in interface outside

access-group in_out in interface inside

or is there anyother way you have done it

HTH, please rate it.
