    Well I feel like a dummy sometimes but I cannot figure this one out.
    I have a POP account that I read email from cPanel. All works just fine. Every morning I get lots of SPAM (what I consider SPAM) emails. Not only that but for each one I get I am getting two.
    Looking at the headers in my Outlook the emails look exactly the same.
    I do have some forwarders setup and have tried disabling them to find out why I am getting two copies of these junk emails.
    Mind you my normal emails I only get one of each.

    What steps can I take to determine why I am getting two of these. Right now I am adding both to my Outlook Add Sender to Blocks.

    Hi,

    Have you checked cPanel > Default Email Account? Perhaps you have a forward here. You could also grep against the exim mainlog for the subject or the general time frame.

    Thanks,

    Thanks, looking at this one from this morning it looks like they are sending two.

    The default email for the account is *: ":fail: No Such User Here. This did come to my personal email though.

    Hello,

    You posted two separate message IDs, indicating that multiple messages are sent to the address, as opposed to duplicates.

    Thank you.
