    Hi All,

    Ok - I have looked and looked for a solution for this.
    It seems like an easy fix, but I just can't find the right config for exim.

    Where is the config option to stop Exim sending those pesky
    "Mail delivery failed: returning message to sender"

    Bounce messages?

    My problem is that they're being sent to spammers who do not pass the spam rules.

    Thank you!

    For anyone else who wants to be able to stop the bounce messages for spam emails, I have found the solution.

    Change this option:

    Exim Configuration Manager ->
    All ->

    - Removed -

    Apache SpamAssassin™: bounce spam score threshold ->
    • No bouncing by spam score default
