    I rarely get messages from Russia and our Russian and Ukranian group has email originating from a Dutch mail server. :) But I get about 2,000 messages a day bounced from mx.nautilus2001.ru thanks to someone using one of my email addresses spoofed as the from email and bouncing from email addresses all over Russia. Is there a best way to configure cpanel to bounce this stuff? this unfortunately is a weakness IMHO because there is no easy way to bounce/kill email other than with Spam Assassin's pitifully weak white and blacklisting. I'm not preferring to work under the hood as I know can be done and was hoping to see something that would assist in a common problem. If anyone has some ideas, it's much appreciated.
