Does Plesk qmail automatic bounce notification setting bother you?

  2. No, I don't care. My servers spam/backscatter rating is already high!

    Well, well. After an autoupdate few days ago our qmail mail server starts to send "failure notice" (backscatter) emails all over the world again.

    ------- cut here ------

    "Hi. This is the qmail-send program at xxx.dedicated.hosteurope.de.
    I tried to deliver a bounce message to this address, but the bounce bounced!

    xx.xx.xx.xx does not like recipient.
    Remote host said: 550 RCPT TO:<spammer@spammer.sp> User unknown
    Giving up on xx.xx.xx.xx."

    I would LOVE to see a general ON/OFF switch for all email bounce notifications on Plesk, since the problem bothers a lot of users. But since it does not seem to happen, please provide a way to deactivate bounces.

    (I am not interested in forwarding all email to some catch-all, I really just want qmail to be quiet!)

    System: Plesk 10.2.0 on Ubuntu Hardy
