    Currently using Exim 4 and Cpanel 7x.

    All bounced emails are being routed to me instead of the orginal senders domain. How can bounced messages be sent to the original sender?

    I know it's some configuration in exim.conf but what?

    Thank you

    Dear ramprage,

    The Exim 4.x, you have an parameter freeze_tell in exim.conf, an value set to this parameter states who to send mail if an mail bounces/freezes...Normally, its set to postmaster if you don\'t want this feature it can be commented in your exim.conf.

    that isnt really a good idea.

    take this scenerio

    bad person sends an email to badaddress@badcomain.org and put you@yourdomain.com as the sender. then the mail bounces back to you@yourdomain.com coming from your server.

    spam gets delivered using your server.
    your server gets blacklisted.
    you have to change IPs cause getting off of ALL blacklists takes FOREVER.
