    It's my understanding that if we use :fail: as the default address for a domain, then junk to that domain will be blocked from even comming into the server.

    It's worked like this for years.

    So if domain xxyz.com used :fail: no Such User Here

    Why do I have a bunch of undeliverable emails in my queue that say:

    A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its
    recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:

    someone@xxyz.com
    No Such User Here


    I am using a standard Exim configuration, plus I've added "Mail Manage" and "Mail Queues" from ConfigServer

    Any suggestions?

    I just noticed this morning that :fail: isn't failing for one of my domains. The mail sits in the queue. But just for one domain, the others seem ok. So far.

    p.s. - also, when I went to edit the default address for this domain, I got:

    Follow up!

    This appears to have been something in cPanel 11.x

    I changed from Current to Release, and this completely changed the exim.conf file.

    Now verify = recipient is back in the exim.conf file, and when I send an email to a failed address, from my yahoo account, the yahoo daemon responds with the fail, instead of it being generated on my server.

    I hope this helps someone later.

    After back-reving cPanel versions, other problems continued. These were caused by SpamAssassin 3.2

    See this thread:
    http://forums.cpanel.net/showthread.php?t=65838

    Once resolving all SpamAssassin problems, I was able to return again to cPanel 11.x (current) without any trouble.

    I seem to have spoke too soon...

    I am now back to having all the :fail: emails being generated and put into the queue again, instead of being generated during the SMTP conversation.

    Nick-

    Actually those have been changed since my last message. I've opened a ticket, and Russel is taking a look at it currently. He seems to ahve the original problem fixed, but is now working on a SpamAssassin issue that popped up.

    If you are curious, it's ticket # 191425

    Thanks!
