Run the commands:

#Echo doublebounce >/var/qmail/control/doublebounceto
#echo # >/var/qmail/alias/.qmail-doublebounce

In this way doublebounces will go to the user doublebounce, who's .qmail
file has nothing in it and so the mail will fall into a black hole.

I think this is what Tom is getting at.

Tom you hit it right.
My problem is tones of doublebounces of spam from forged return and bad

I do not have doublebounceto file under
How do I set it up and what should be in it,
to have doublebounces go to that file instead of 
forwarding them to postmaster?

I will create .qmail-doublebounce and  put "#" in
to delete all doublebounces
