'mail Delivery Failed: Returning Message To Sender

Recommended Posts


I just enabled Spam Assassin and have since started receiving strange emails from the Mailer-Daemon.


From what I can decipher of the header information this is what's happening:

1. Spam message comes to my user@domain.com account.

2. Spam Assassin flags it as spam and attempts to send it to my user@domain.com account.

3. For some reason my user@domain.com rejects it

4. The mail is returned to sender as undeliverable - BUT - since it was sent by Spam Assassin the sender is my account, so it ends up in my catch-all account as a returned message.


Has anyone experienced this?

It's frustrating as I'm now getting just as many of these emails as I would spam.

I can post the message if that would be helpful, but it's rather long.
