    Hi,

    I did read a few threads on bounce email and it seems to be affecting my server too..

    I'm seeing gradual increase in exim que.. currently it is at 600+ emails..

    I used ConfigServer Mail Queues to check it shows some thing like this(of course few hundred)..

    Code:
    1VMfFQ-0002lJ-7K		24h	9.8K	[bounce]	x93d@turktelekom.com.tr
    1VMfFQ-0002lT-BK		24h	9.8K	[bounce]	x2b713@ttnet.com.tr
    1VMfGQ-0002nm-4H		24h	106K	[bounce]	xteam@virginmedia.com
    1VMfI0-0002qO-C7		24h	106K	[bounce]	xteam@virginmedia.com
    1VMfJR-0002rz-Q5		24h	106K	[bounce]	xteam@virginmedia.com
    
    I opened one of the mail and here is the header..

    Code:
    1VMfFQ-0002lJ-7K-H
    mailnull 47 12

    I'm already using ConfigServer Mail Queues to view and deleting bounce emails.

    But, how to solve this issue? The mail que starts to fill with bounce emails again in a few hours.

    pl help.

    Check with the Spam origin. Suspect there should be spam sent previously from the server. Now you shoule be receiving more bounce backs. You can identify those as the frozen mails in the exim mail queue.

    Can you try # exim -bpr | grep frozen | wc -l

    Can you post the output here ?

    Hello :)

    Could you provide more information on the specific "bounce email" issue you are having? For instance, could you provide an example of the type of scenario that is occurring? Note that the following document is useful for preventing email abuse on your system:

    Thank you.
