SMTP Proxy Not receiving Client Quit...

I recently ran into a situation where legacy devices are sending emails for alerting. However, the firmware uses AUTH PLAIN as the security mechanism which is no longer supported in the new 0365 code revision. So I decided to attempt to proxy SMTP for these devices, so that I could deal with the auth mechanism.

 

I have everything working. However, it seems as though once the mail is queued the Client QUIT is not processed or isn't seen so the connections go into a stale state. The servers then send a 451 response and the client connection eventually closes. I believe this is causing a problem with e-mails sent in succession. If the legacy devices send 3 emails in succession (alerts). Two may be delivered.

 

In testing this against a POSTFIX server this is not an issue. I can clearly see the Client send a QUIT to the POSTFIX server when it is not running across the F5 VIP.

 

Here is my code, so far. I am wondering if there is something that is missing or miscoded that might be causing this problem.

 

# GATHER PAYLOAD VARIABLES AND STORE FOR LATER. when CLIENT_ACCEPTED {     set chelo ""     set cfrom ""     set crcpt ""     set cauth ""     set cquit ""     TCP::respond "220\r\n"     log local0.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
