            Bug ID: 2228
           Summary: retry rules with extended status codes
           Product: Exim
           Version: 4.90
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: medium
         Component: Delivery in general
          Assignee: nigel@???
          Reporter: jgh146exb@???

Some way of matching the extended status code in a 4xx response, to a retry
rule. Use case: "451 4.5.3" means "local error in processing, too many
recipients" so a very fast retry is appropriate. Slight oddly Hotmail has been
seen using "452 4.5.3" which somehow conflates "insufficient system storage,
too many recipients" - by which they mean "different region-group for that
rcpt; can't handle them together".

Anyway, either extend the rcpt_4xx field to rcpt_4xx_x.x.x
or add something like "extcode=4.5.3" in the extra field so-far only used
by "sender=".

eg: "* rcpt_45x_4.5.3 F,1h,1s; G,5d,15m,1.5"
