    Hello,
    I am wondering if anyone else is noticing this problem. I just logged in to webmail using my main account, not my e-mail address but the main account. I had over 100mb of bounces in that inbox. I have noticed that most of the spam that I receive has: Return-path: <myaccountname@myhostname> in the header, so the bounces are ending up in my main accounts inbox which is not checked because it is not an e-mail address. Not sure if that makes sense or not, but this is not an e-mail address and yet e-mail messages end up there. All the bounces that are for spammers that send e-mail to every e-mail address they can think of is going into my main account. I can not find any way to delete the main account mailbox, is there a way to eliminate e-mail being able to be sent to it so that it does not fill up my server space.

    Have you tried :fail: ? BTW-unlike some other forums you can easily delete a post.

    The main email box cannot be deleted or blackholed or failed. You should always collect email from it.
