    Does anyone know if we can use :blackhole: for the options under &Change where system mail goes& in WHM? I'm getting a lot of bounced emails to nobody (from people using bogus addresses in forums my customers have running) and I'd like to just have those get deleted immediately.

    Use /dev/null instead.

    So you've confirmed that /dev/null will indeed work through that particular configuration setting? I've found it to not work in other places.

    /dev/null works fine. If you want to test it, set your 3 systems addresses to forward to /dev/null, tail the exim log and send messages to the system addresses.
