    Dear Markwaugh,

    Check for you have any .forward files present in your home directory if it is present then it is creating this problem.

    If no default .forward file is present then chances are the filter file is configured in some other name.

    Test the filter file by sending messages from some other account. If you send a message to yourself from the filtered account, and delivery fails, the error message will be sent back to the same account, which may cause another delivery failure.It does mean that the failure won\'t be returned to you.

    Post the mail delivery error you get by sending the mail from another account to your account. That will help to solve the problem.
