    I see tons of the below in the exim log but do not really understand what it means. Are emails being sent TO or FROM egoldmanid@xxxxxx.com?? How do I ban it?

    they are all to egoldmanid@xxxxxx.com which is either a forwarder to the main account or the user has the default address (catch-all) set to their main account

    You will have to grep the message id's from the exim log to see where they came from as you have only listed the second part of the delivery of those messages.

    for example:
    Code:
    grep "1I2SN9-0001uW-SE" /var/log/exim_mainlog
    Would show the transaction of the last message

    you cant read the content of that e-mail unless it is still in the mailbox it was delivered to.

    By the transaction you posted, its a bounce message. (notice the <> instead of a sender address)
