ec_disconnect — set SMTP status and close the SMTP connection


ec_disconnect { smtp-code } { reason } [ counter ]


This takes the same argument and performs the same action as ec_action except that subsequent to sending the response to the remote MTA, the SMTP session is terminated. NOTE: to be strictly RFC compliant, the SMTP code here should almost always be 421.

The optional counter string is used to count the number of hits for this particular action; if omitted, the script filename and line number will be assumed. You can see the hit count via the web console or via ec_console using the sieve stats command.

This is a terminal action; no further Sieve rules will be run for the current message in the current phase.
