Re: retry 5xx using a fallback outgoing IP

the primary mx is not refusing *me* the postifx box, it's refusing connections initiated by me from one of the two IP address.

Do the RFCs handle such cases? (fallback to a different smtp_bind_address)

Does postfix have some round-robin or fallback choice of smtp_bind_address?

The RFCs and postfix do not allow retry after a 5xx permanent rejection.

Attempting to workaround this will likely get your working IP and
your sending domain blacklisted. Don't do it.
