Hi all,
We are using MDaemon Professional Edition.
Issue is: I have an account noreply@domain.com. I send newsletters with this account to our members. I am sending about 20K to 60K mail copies each day. So, some users' mail accounts are over quota, or some users are insisting to reply to that mail address. And also I am recieveing MAIL CANNOT BE DELIVERED, PERMAMNENT ERROR messeges continiously. I have checked THIS ACCOUNT CANNOT RECIEVE MAIL FROM OUTSIDE world. Yes, it is not recieving mails from outside world. But it is refusing and sending mail to senders like, no such account is present etc.. And mail server (local account) is sending to that account thousand of mail cannot be sent messeges. I want to delte right away anykind of mail addresses to noreply@domain.com

Thanks in advance.

Hmmm...OK, I've never used MDaemon, so I dunno if this functionality is present. However, in a sendmail environment, what I would do is put an alias in that directed E-Mail to noreply@domain.com to /dev/nul

Like so:

noreply: |/dev/nul

I'm not sure how that would work in an MDaemon environment tho.

The trick in Exchange is to create a distribution group with no members. Then attach the email address to that distribution group. The messages disapear in to a blackhole never to be seen again.
Anything similar in MDaemon?
