Mailscanner is accepting mails to non existing accounts

Post by hilario »

Hello,

I notice that emails sent to non existing accounts are being accepted by Mailscanner and can be seen on MailControl.

The last line in the mail forward file is: *: :fail: No Such User Here

It appears to me that it is not behaving like described here: https://www.configserver.com/free/fail.html

Is there a way to set Mailscanner or Exim to completely block mails to non existing users?
What have I done wrong?

This has nothing to do with MailScanner. It is exim that accepts or rejects emails based on whether the account exists. You need to check either the cPanel forum or exim newsgroup and documentation for help with this.
