I run fetchmail in daemon mode to download
POP3 mail from my ISP.

Sendmail rejects many messages as for example:
Aug 14 16:59:33 beta sm-mta[35000]: i7E7DYje035000: ruleset=check_mail, arg1=<[EMAIL PROTECTED]>, relay=localhost.home [], reject=451 4.1.8 Domain of sender address [EMAIL PROTECTED] does not resolve

I am quite happy to have these rejected but it seems they don't get deleted at the ISP end and clog up the mail box, I think eventually confusing fetchmail.

Is there some reasonable way of disposing of these messages. I would
prefer not to download these into my normal user mailbox but I would be quite happy to divert them to some pseudo user setup for the purpose. I would imagine sendmail can be coaxed into doing this, but

Responding to 2 or 3 lists using a valid e-mail address means that
I receive a lot of spam including much with unresolvable addresses.

I would appreciate any ideas.

have a look at mail/filtermail
