    Hi,

    My server (plesk 9.5.2) is getting emails send to a non-existant local address.

    As pointed out in http://forum.parallels.com/showthread.php?t=108842 this causes a bounce when I really want the mail rejected.

    Tailing the maillog (see below) shows what happens.

    My control/smtpplugins includes a chkrcptto plugin (which i guess is standard plesk).

    I understand that there are various patches out there but I am not confident in my skills just in case the qmail system stops after applying the patch.

    Is there a way of incuding my servers name in the mailnames folder and default file so that emails are checked ?

    ie /var/qmail/mailnames/my.serversname.tld/.qmail-default


    I think plesk ovewrites most of the control/* files when a domain is added etc.


    regards

    Justin.
