I am using a combination of OpenSMTPD/Dovecot/Amavisd(Clamd/Spamassassin) for 
a mail server.

I am seeing a lot of the following messages in the maillog:

May 14 11:49:50 mail smtpd[22409]: relay: TempFail for d5b0bef3e46ade55: 
session=f8402c9c9b9ce396, from=<newelskkg4 at>,

delivery-notification FAILED: temporarily unable to send DSN to

during fwd-rcpt-to (No response to RCPT (<newelskkg4 at>), dt: 
0.000 s): id=22378-01-2 at /usr/sbin/amavisd line 13807.

The only similar things I've seen online are someone having issues with Postfix 
and custom Java code.

Telnet to that port shows the following:

[root at mail conf.d]# telnet 10025

Connection closed.
