Repeated autoresponder emails to server default address

A client with an account on my VPS has set up an autoresponder while he's on holiday. I get his auto-respond email at least once a day (though I never emailed him). It comes to my default email address registered for the VPS.

The header info in the email I get shows:

"To: Mail Delivery System <[email protected]>
X-Autorespond: Mail delivery failed: returning message to sender"

So it looks like if his auto-respond bounces back - I get the email sent to my default email address instead.

Any idea how to stop that happening?

Hello,

This appears to match the issue described on the following thread:

mailer-daemon + autoresponders

You can review the second page of that thread to see the outcome.

Thank you.
