    I have all invalid email address for all domain go to the root mailbox

    I will like that nobody receive these messages or the sender receive a error message

    I have debian with postfix (maildir) and ispconfig 2.2.19

    Add this to /etc/aliases:
    root: /dev/null
    Then run
    /etc/init.d/postfix restart

    That's not a good idea because spammers use wrong sender addresses, so the error messages would reach the wrong people...

    This error message is fine. If someone sends a email to the email address [email protected] and you did not create a email address [email protected], this message is delivered back to the sending email server.
