I have a very strange issue. I run a mail personal server, so I'm not sure if more host are affected (at least others seem to be working), but I can't participate in FreeBSD mailing lists anymore :(
11.1-RELEASE-p1 version (yes, I know, but it is not right time to upgrade)
postfix-3.3.0_1,1

Code:
alias_database = hash:/etc/mail/aliases
alias_maps = hash:/etc/mail/aliases
biff = no

debug_peer_level = 2
debugger_command = PATH=/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin ddd $daemon_directory/$process_name $process_id & sleep 5
html_directory = no

inet_protocols = ipv4
mail_owner = postfix

Here is the problem:
Code:
Dec  5 21:09:53 mail postfix/smtp[39269]: DD3791AFBA: to=<freebsd-test@freebsd.org>, relay=none, delay=2078, delays=2048/0.01/30/0, dsn=4.4.3, status=deferred (Host or domain name not found. Name service error for name=mx66.freebsd.org type=A: Host not found, try again)

I'm running 1 recursive resolver (bind911-9.11.4P2) for my home network and it's definitely resolving

Code:
options {

        directory       "/usr/local/etc/namedb/working";
        pid-file        "/var/run/named/pid";
        dump-file       "/var/dump/named_dump.db";
        statistics-file "/var/stats/named.stats";

        listen-on       { 127.0.0.1; 10.0.10.1; };
        allow-query { any; };
        allow-recursion { local; };
        allow-query-cache { local; };
        version "*hiss*";

};

acl local { 127.0.0.1; 10.0.0.0/16; 192.168.0.0/16; xxxxxxxxxxx; xxxxxxxxxxxx; };

view local {

        match-clients { local; };
        include "/usr/local/etc/namedb/named-rfc.conf";
        zone "xxxxxxxxxx" {

                type master;
                allow-query { any; };
                allow-update { 10.0.0.222; xxxxxxxxxxxx; xxxxxxxxxx; };
                file "/usr/local/etc/namedb/slave/xxxxxxxxxx-local-forward.db";
        };
};
Heeeeeelp :(

So, something with bind ? But it has so simple configuration and resolving without issues other hosts (including freebsd.org).

I don't have dig
Code:
abishai@mail:~ % drill @localhost freebsd.org mx

Is it right command ? mail is jail.

smtp_dns_support_level=true didn't help, however smtp_host_lookup=dns,native helped.
I have default nsswitch.conf, with hosts: files dns so I use my very dns server when postfix dns lookup fails.
This is still very weird.

Damn, all my 100 mails flushed to freebsd-test@freebsd.org and it dies
Code:
Dec  6 12:06:31 mail postfix/smtp[75983]: send attr reason = host mx66.freebsd.org[96.47.72.85] said: 450-4.3.2 Service currently unavailable
I feel I'll get ban for another reason now. :( :(

I just tested freebsd-test@freebsd.org with my postfix server:
Code:
Dec  6 10:42:24 egress postfix/smtp[10635]: 9BF4C1E1666: host mx1.freebsd.org[96.47.72.80] said: 450-4.3.2 Service currently unavailable 450 4.3.2 in case of permanent delivery errors (e.g. 5XX SMTP errors) please send your problem report from a non-blocked location (e.g. gmail/yahoo) to postmaster@FreeBSD.org and include the following information: time (Dec 06 12:42:24) and client (1x.xxx.xxx.xxx). (in reply to RCPT TO command)
Dec  6 10:42:27 egress postfix/smtp[10635]: 9BF4C1E1666: to=<freebsd-test@freebsd.org>, relay=mx66.freebsd.org[96.47.72.85]:25, delay=13, delays=0.77/0.01/10/2, dsn=2.0.0, status=sent (250 2.0.0 Ok: queued as 6E6F78FFD9)
Dec  6 10:42:28 egress postfix/qmgr[740]: 9BF4C1E1666: removed
It looks like freebsd.org utilizes the so called poor man’s greylisting - which is actually not that poor, only you need no special software for this kind of greylisting. You inform a dead MX or one which always errors out as the one with the highest priority, and operate the working MX on lower priority (higher number).
Code:
# host freebsd.org
freebsd.org has address 96.47.72.84
freebsd.org has IPv6 address 2610:1c1:1:606c::50:15
freebsd.org mail is handled by 10 mx1.freebsd.org.
freebsd.org mail is handled by 30 mx66.freebsd.org.
Normal clients would connect first to the higher one (here mx1), and in case this fails would try again with the second one (now mx66). An effective greylisting installation would enforce clients not to bypass the first MX, because spammers could easily setup their bots to always use the MX having the lowest priority (higher number).

You need to check why your postfix does not first try mx1.freebsd.org. My did, and received a temporary failure code 450, and almost immediately (3 sec later) it tried again using mx66.freebsd.org, this time with success.

Looks like it is working fine here. I am using my own DNS servers that do not currently support DNSSEC

Code:
Dec  6 17:22:46 sigma postfix/qmgr[17403]: D1A8229A45F: from=<my@mail.address>, size=726, nrcpt=1 (queue active)

Use drill with -DT option on your DNS and see if it can verify and return response of the server. You may need to update your postfix tho.

Thanks for help, guys. I think I'll stop here. As Postfix works with smtp_host_lookup=native further digging assumes OS and postfix updates. As I slowly (I learn ansible and writing all configuration with it) migrating to a new server, this is not I want to perform with the old one.
