    Spam and an account I don't use

    A filter has been added that sends all mail header_to: that is user@somewhere.net Discard

    This seems to work for my problem below, can some of you confirm it is my answer to the problem?

    UPDATE: it did not work, just got a new load of spam. help?????


    Original post here:
    Hello.


    i have somewhere.net all set up as a subdomain but I do not want to use user@somewhere.net as an email, it is infested with spam, about 1 a minute. It seems that even though my email browsers are not set to check for messages at user@somewhere.net, they come in as an attachment to our main hosting address. our main hosting address is user@somewhere.com (notice the subdomain is .net and the domain is .com.

    I have deleted the email address from cpanel, I even deleted the account from my email software, but it comes to the default address i have set up in Cpanel.

    I would like to do the following:

    Have all mail sent to user@somewhere.net to be auto deleted or bounced back out, preferably bounced back I guess.

    I really liked this email address but somehow it is over infested with spam. :mad:

    Thanks in advance, Rick
