    Hi there,

    Was wondering if i could get all my bounced email notifications to go to another users inbox?

    and if so where do i change that?

    Currently i get them as Admin. which is annoying when someone is using our domain name around the place.

    Actually i was wrong.
    When a bounced email comes into the system (ie.. unknown user), i get the original email, but i would like to put it in another inbox.
    Any suggestions?

    ah - narrowed it down.

    So what is happening, is that when a crap email comes in to [email protected], postfix sends back a bounce notification indicating that the user doesn't exist here, but then also passes through that message into my email (as somewhere i have used my name for the postmaster?)
    So what i want is that original email to be shifted into another users box...

    You can modify /etc/aliases so that mails for postmaster go to another account.
    after you've modified the file and restart Postfix.

    Thanks Falko, actually i found my problem. It was being bounced via fetchmail.
    i have fetchmail picking up my mail from a CATCHALL mailbox. And it was bouncing the messages. So i've changed that address now.
