Emails have been coming to all my hosted clients.

they are mostly that old fbi.gov, cia.gov, i've to a new email address, registration confirmation,etc.

Spam, viruses etc.

 

I went into all the hosted domains and set default addresses to the :fail setting, but they are still getting them.

I am also.

 

It was my understanding that the :fail setting would bounce back any emails that weren't addressed to an actual email account under the domains.

 

I am still getting these emails in MY mail that are address to :

 

some non-existing email account@****

 

Am I missing something here?

 

My antivirus is always up to date as is my spybot s&d and my adaware se which I run religiously.

 

I told my clients to have everyone in their address books make sure that THEIR systems are updated and clean.

Can anyone shed some light on this problem?

I sent a help ticket a couple days ago but they must be busy.

 

thanks in advance.

No. I put ":fail" only because I knew you would know what I was talking about.

 

To be precise, I actually have:

 

:fail:no such address here

 

as per the "hint" in cpanel

Yes, I know they are the new sober virus. I just wonder why the :fail:no such address was still letting them through.

 

With one domain I used :blackhole:

 

which I have now changed to just :fail:

Thanks. I will try that.

 

I only put that in there because it was bolded along with :fail: so it appeared to be what should be.

It's working good.

Too good.

Now I don't get any mail.

why is that?

Sorry for what may be an obvious question - you can never tell what level others are at in this stuff...

 

Do you have any email accounts or forwards set up? If not then :fail: will block them all.

Yes, Jim, I have minimum of 3 on each domain and several on my own.

 

I removed the :fail: from my own this morning and I just got home,

so I am testing a couple things.

 

Happy Holidays to all.

Should I , or should I NOT be putting the :fail: command on each email recipient?
