    I am using a discussion board which sends registrations activation mails which gets bounced mails.
    The bounced mails are sent to the system default mail account. I did not set any mail options to the board so it is sending mail as localhost i think and i am not clear about this. So seeing that the bounces are received to the default system mail account then i assume that the board is using the default system mail account to send mails.


    I want to pipe default system mail account to a script so that i can manipulate the bounced names and their email ids.

    How to pipe the default system mail account to a script.

    for example if the default account name is sample and the sitename is sample then what happens is it is automatically assuming as instead of just sample. because in the Address to Forward list the domain name is shown so we cannot leave that field blank.

    hope i have made it clear.
