    Hi All,

    I'm sure there's a setting somewhere that I'm missing. I always receive a copy of every bounced email from all of my WHM servers. Obviously, I don't want this.

    In the WHM -> Server Contacts -> Change System Mail Preferences page the only field I have filled out is root's email is to be sent to my external email address. The Nobody's mail and cPanel's mail preferences are empty.

    I can only assume, then, that somewhere I have a setting that tells my server to send all bounced or unrouteable mail or something to root.

    Can someone give me a pointer or two on where to find this setting? I've searched the forums but none of the threads seem to deal with my specific problem.

    Thanks!

    I am in the same boat and would love to have a solution for this. I will be watching this thread.

    Do you have aliases set up for postmaster/abuse? (Which you have to accept for RFC compliance) as this is where most of the bounces I get are addressed to

    Ah, yes I do.

    Hmm....to be compliant and irritated or to be not irritated and not compliant.


    Thanks
