    How do i get exim to not bounce any messages for any reason??? I have a spammer who is changing his ip's fatser than i can filter them. I have tried everything from black hole to fail. I know there has to be a way to shutoff all bounce messages. Any help??? Now i am also assuming that the bounce outgoing messages is the problem,

    Thanks

    Here is an example of what i am getting? Now this wpould not be a problem except for the fact i ahve a 1000 smtp limit per day _

    rrently not permitted to relay through this server. Perhaps you have not logged into the pop/imap server in the last 30 minutes or do not have SMTP Authentication turned on
    in your email client.

    Now from what i understand when this occures exim is bouncing back an reject email is this correct??? Any advice would help?

    Go on, have a guess
    You should use :fail: in your Default Address catchall aliases as :fail: sends a rejection notice to the sending SMTP server during the RCPT stage of the SMTP connection - these are not bounce emails to the sender as such. Things to check for in the /etc/valiases/* files:

    1. Don't use :blackhole:

    2. Don't use /dev/null

    3. Make sure none of the email accounts on the server are over their mail quota, if they are either remove them or empty them

    4. Make sure none of the cPanel accounts are over their disk quota

    This usually rules out most actual bounces which the above 4 can generate.

    Is there a quick way to check this without having to manually check all users' cPanels?
