Hi all

I have a huge problem on my hand. I was using a mass mail tool, and it so happened that a large number of emails i used were either faulty or non-existant. The emails bounced back and were redirected to my root email. My nobody email is empty and i've already checked "Prevent the user 'nobody' from sending out mail to remote addresses", and set "Default catch-all/default address behavior for new accounts" to fail.

Is there anything else i have to do in order to ignore emails bouncing back from faulty email addresses? Also, i now have 17000+ emails in my root email account. Is there a way to just delete them all without having to download all of them? (yes i have ssh/whm access)

Thanks for any assistance in advance!

Rgds, Mike
