    Hello,

    I have a problem and need your help!

    I have a PHP mail script that receives mail and places them in a mysql database.
    When a e-mail doesn't match a user account it sends a error e-mail back to the sender. The problem now is that many senders have bugus addresses and this generates error e-mails from the exim server.

    My question is, how can I tell exim to send failed messages to another e-mail address other than the "account_name@hostname" or to /dev/null?

    Thanks

    Good luck in working this one out. Cpanel has enough problems with Exim let alone trying to control return email.

    HINT: Maybe you should be checking new signups and do some kind of verification of the email address before allowing e-mail to be recorded in your db.
