    I'm having issues with a certain domain/message board that gets alot of returned mail due to the fact that the users can't keep their profiles up to date and they subscribe to threads anyway.

    Does anyone know of a way that I can have returned mail for a specific domain routed to a different address than root? Maybe even routed to black hole...... anything other than root will work.

    Thanks Support Ticket Number:

    Dear SH-Matt,

    Create an .forward file in root home directory and redirect e-mail coming to root to some user ID you prefer.

    An sample .forward file which redirect mail coming to jdoe user ID to e-mail ID specfied.


    Also, you can use procmail to filter mails of your intreast.
