I am receiving spam addressed to a particular non-existent user on my own account (not a postmaster account), which is at the same domain as the non-existent user. The catch-all setting for the domain is "bounced".
How can this happen? Here is an example header, to clarify. Since I am not suspecting that DNS-resolving issues are involved, I have changed the domain name to "example": > Return-Path: <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> > Delivered-To: [EMAIL PROTECTED] > Received: (qmail 43200 invoked from network); 6 Oct 2003 21:52:43 -0000 > Received: from unknown (HELO 126.96.36.199) (188.8.131.52) > by vps.breathsense.com with SMTP; 6 Oct 2003 21:52:43 -0000 > To: <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> > From: "Expert Programmers" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> > Subject: Better Applications Require Better Developers! wzjf > X-Priority: 3 > Reply-To: [EMAIL PROTECTED] > Message-Id: <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> > Date: Mon, 6 Oct 2003 14:52:55 +0400 > X-MimeOLE: Produced By Microsoft MimeOLE V6.00.2800.1106 > X-MSMail-Priority: Normal > Mime-Version: 1.0 > Content-Type: multipart/alternative; > boundary="----=_NextPart_005_0001_BNOJVXEC.BDBQJPGV" "faith" is neither an account nor a forward for the domain in question, and so should bounce. If I send to that address, either locally or via another SMTP it bounces. So how can a message "To" that address end up "Delivered-To" me? I am using: vpopmail 5.3.12 qmail 1.03 qmailadmin 1.0.6 Thanks for any help. -Kurt Bigler
