Default root mail receiving spam

Hello, thanks for the great product!!

I've installed ISPConfig 2.2.7 under SuSE 10.1 following Falko's "Perfect Setup", and everything is running great.

I've noticed, however, that if I log into the console as root and check mail, the root account is receiving spam. I also discovered that the second account I created during the setup (admin) is also receiving spam, though not nearly as much. Why are these accounts receiving mail at all, and how do I keep it from happening?

Postfix accepts email for local users, this is fine and nescessary for ISPConfig. If you dont want to receive emails for e.g. root, you can create a alias in the postfix aliases file and forward the emails to one of your other users. Dont forget to run newaliases afterwards.

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.
