    Hi Guys,
    My SMP's are currently set as follows:

    The system currently forwards mail for “cpanel” to “***@***”.
    The system currently forwards mail for “root” to “***@***”.
    The system currently forwards mail for “nobody” to “root”.

    The issue is that I, only a daily basis, receive several auto-responder emails which my customers have setup. This started happening the moment I updated the above to email addresses to reflect my own. My guess is that one of them, probably 'nobody', is forwarding me auto-responders due to spam sent to my customers auto-responders.
    Now, I need cpanel and root setup as above to receive notifications, etc. Would it be prudent of me to make 'nobody' emails go nowhere or is that not advised?
    If its fine, can I just clear the field or do I need to enter something specific in there like :blackhole:

    IMHO, all three should go to a valid email address, off server.
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...
