    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 <Mailer-Daemon@my-server-address>
    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.
