    Hello,

    I'm receiving 100's of emails a minute to the same email address on my server. The email is sitting in the mail queue however as there are so many, the server CPU keeps maxing out because of spamassasin (now disabled).

    The emails are practically the same, the only difference being the sender IP.

    Does anyone know how I can block these from even sitting in the mail queue. i.e. bounce them straight away.

    Thanks in advance.

    Adam.

    I have several accounts that still use catchalls, most of the accounts are set to :fail: though.

    I assume I can just implement this ACL and keep the few domains with catchalls? The ACL will then work only for the domains with main account set to :fail: , correct?

    I`ve got my catch all address set to :blackhole: I always thought :fail: would send a bounce, am I thinking right?

    cheers
