CPanel is behind another machine which functions as the mail gateway. It looks like the password reminders all bounced.

The From line looks correct: "From: [listname][email protected][domain]"

However, the problem appears to be: "Return-path: <[email protected]>"

and the error message is "504 <[email protected]>: Sender address rejected: need fully-qualified address"

How do I fix this so messages go out from a deliverable address? I looked, but I was unable to find anywhere where I can configure this.

Hello,


We had the same problem. It seemed that there was a mailing list with thousands of emails (about 40.000) that had about 1/3 of them bouncing due to non-existing e-mail addresses. We removed the mailing list and no more brute force detection in our server, no more high server loads etc.


1) Go to /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/lists
2) Do an ls and see the directory names
3) Execute /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/bin/dumpdb DIRNALE/config.pck |wc -l for every single subdirectory

Subtract about 140 from it and you'll have an output of how many e-mails exist in a mailing list. I bet one of those mailing lists has thousands of e-mails.

Let me know if it helped
