We had a problem yesterday with one of our internal systems that 
milter-ahead checks with for valid recipients. During the time the problem 
occurred, a particular user was recieving mail and milter-ahead logged:

Milter: to=<xxx@xxx.xxx>, reject=451 4.7.1 server [xxx.xxx.xxx] for 
<xxx@xxx.xx> does not accept <> address as required by RFC 821, 1123, 
2505, and 2821

After this point, even after the destination server had been fixed,  mail 
destined for that user recieved:

Milter: to=<xxx@xxx.xxx>, reject=450 4.7.1 Recipient denied

Other users (probably cached) were getting mail delivered without a 

The user was able to recieve mail after I restarted milter-ahead.

The recipient denied message is not documented on the web page. Any idea 
what was happening?
