    It just recently came to my attention that my default should be :fail: instead of :blackhole:. Wow, I guess I'm a little behind the times on that one!

    I understand the logic, but here's my question. How do I prevent the server from sending a bounced email back to the spammer?

    Well, I don't think you'd want to prevent that, really.

    If a person simply mistyped an actual account, say 'jhon@' instead of 'john@' and you DIDN'T have some type of bounce, the sender will never know unless they happen to look at their sent message, or they ask the recipient later if they got the message.

    There's got to be some balance between spam and honest mistakes.
