    Hello,
    Working out some solutions for lower spam I discover that:
    -The Mail filtering work only if the mail account (User) exist.
    -Setting the Default-Mail (Catchall) to :fail: wil also bounce the mydomain@myadomain.com , not only thr unrouted mail.
    Do I am right?

    Yes, that is correct. but you go to the Manage Accounts section of the control panel and create a mydomain@mydomain.com account (I know that sounds odd to create a second account with the same address as the default account, but this does work), then you can log into that account with the full email address as the username and the password you specified when creating it. This account will now collect all mydomain@mydomain.com mail and unrouted mail will be :fail:.
