    Hi

    We received a lot of bounce messages daily to our server's root.

    Is it possible to set WHM>Change System Mail Preferences>nobody's mai to say DISCARD?

    If it is, should we use :Discard: ???

    Its really very irritating to receive bounce emails from your clients.

    Any advise appreciated.

    Go on, have a guess
    It's best set to /dev/null - I did some testing a while back and anything else didn't function as expected. The alternative is to use the nobody rewrite rule that's been mentioned several times on the forum that changes the mail header to use the PHP script mail() From: header.
