ok the test server was good enough for small tests
with 2.0.13 dove

private/dovecot-lmtp] said: 451 4.2.0 <.... at ....com> Internal error
occurred. Refer to server log for more information.

dict: Error: mysql(localhost2): Connect failed to database (postfix):
Unknown MySQL server host '...' (1) - waiting for 125 seconds before retry

youre right looks like default is tempfail 451

so it stays in postfix  queue
and is permanent retry

after sql comming back , its getting delivered
i.e force with Flush Queue

so thats good enough for me i think
Best Regards
