    Hello there,

    now, I am not sure how to disable that feature, that's why I ask here.

    The feature is:

    If I have a certain website on the server, witth let's say its owner having the username "owner", and the site contains an email like "someemail@website.com", all is well.


    If for some reason I am forced to remove the email address "someemail@website.com" or delete the relevant redirector, ALL emails end up bouncing at "owner" email account.

    I DONT want this to happen anymore. I just want whoever emails someone on server, and his address is inexistant, or something of the sort, to get a message of the type "Mail delivery failed: Returning message to sender" et al.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Go on, have a guess
    Check the setting for the Default Address. If you set this to :blackhole: any emails not sent to a valid POP3 account or alias will be silently deleted.

    Say, thanks!

    I found out that I can also use " :fail: no such address here " in order to bounce the mail!

    Problem solved then...
