    :fail:

    (with the colons)

    Hi,

    Putting :fail: will produce a failure notice to the sender. What about without the failure notice?

    Thanks.

    If you just want the mail to get eaten then you put:
    :blackhole:

    anything you put in there that doesn\'t have a real account on the server sends back a error message to the sender. Even :blackhole:

    Woopsy... should have tested that first. If whatever\'s stripping stuff out didn\'t do that then blackhole should work (according to the exim site). Guess cpanel stripped out the :\'s though.
