    Hi,

    I own a server where clients set-up autoresponders via their cpanel.

    As server admin email address, I get a tonne of autoresponder messages being sent to Mailer-Daemon@myserver.com, which they come to me, I guess as the result of fake spam email address to the autoresponder email.

    Is there anything I can do to stop these coming to me?

    Thanks.

    Will.

    Hello :)

    The following feature request may interest you:

    Autoresponders should ignore spams -- not reply to them

    You may also want to configure a User Level Filter for the email address associated with the autoresponder to discard certain messages before they are delivered.

    Thank you.

    This worked for me .... set the Autoreponder Interval to a very high figure, like 720 hours.

    Even with spam filter, some spams may still get through. Is it possible to tell the Mailer-Daemon@ to completely ignore all failed "auto-responded" messages or at least don't forward them to root?

    You could setup a filter to discard those messages so you do not receive them in your inbox.

    Thank you.
