    We are getting NDR type spam abuse on our cpanel mail server. Does anyone know how to disable this?

    ------------------------------
    * NDR abuse: Mail server is misconfigured, sending unsolicited Non-Delivery
    Reports (NDR) that have been abused by spammers using spoofed "From"
    field. It should be re-configured to avoid sending NDR and (optionally) respond
    only at the SMTP connection for any errors (i.e mailbox full, mailbox not found,
    etc) or the local administrator. Please completely disable NDR from the mail
    server. More information: Non delivery report - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    ------------------------------

    If anyone can guide me into fixing this, it would be appreciated as I have looked over all the settings and see nothing regard "NDR" in WHM.

    Hey,

    First you need to find the spoofing mails and disable it from the server. Check your mail Queue for this.

    I'm also interested in this one... the last thing I want to do is send a bounce back to someone who had their email spoofed... cause next thing you know I am going to get blacklisted for sending the bounce...

    How can I change this?
