    Some times, a malicious script send many emails with emails addresses that do not exist.

    How to avoid that server or one account send emails with email addresses that do not exist?

    Hi,

    This is a pure case of spamming. To avoid this, the best way is to disable the PHP mail function and use SMTP authentication in the PHP mail script, so the mails will be send through PHP script, but it will actually authenticate the mail server properly.
