    When I send the mail via Outlook it bounces fine. It's only when I do it via Neomail's web interface that the bounced mail comes back to my catch-all.

    I think the problem is with Exim not trusting Neomail to change the outgoing mail header. This is talked about in Neomail's docs here:
    http://neomail.sourceforge.net/INSTALL

    However, looking at my /etc/exim.conf file I don't see anything that says:
    trusted_users = mail

    Also, what user does Neomail run under? The docs are telling me to add it to the trusted user directive of Exim so that Exim will allow Neomail to change the header.

    Good question

    Can anyone figure out a workaround?

    If you put this in exim.conf:

    trusted_users = username:username:.........
    [i:1ebe8bff2a](replacing username with the actual account user)[/i:1ebe8bff2a]

    you'll get bounced messages returned to the sender's mailbox instead of the account user. Remember to restart exim after adding that directive. ;)

    Excellent that worked!

    Now why doesn't cpanel do this by default?
