    how do I get rid of the bouncing email notifications from clogging up the mail queue?

    For instance, I have a client who setup name@domain.com and then setup so that all unaddressed emails get bounced. But they are being bounced back to me. I have tried "change where system mail goes" to :blackhole: but that does not seem to work.

    thankyou.

    still having this problem. The problem is that bounced emails are goign to the system admin of the box, not any account. That's the one i need to get rid of. bounced notifications to the admin of the box.

    System Mail Preferences

    @matt621 - jeez you have been trying to get this one sorted for a long time. :)
    I don't know if changing the email addresses in WHM/Server Setup/Change System Mail Preferences to an email address that is irrelavant will help. The link that this menu item calls is /scripts/rootmail. Perhaps within that script there is a tweak. HTH
