    Cheers Falco, I'll take a look - will that work for BCC fields as well?

    Hmm no it doesn't work for Bcc fields - I'll have to look into another method.

    In case anyone wants to try this for blocking emails to a specific address in To: or Cc: fields:

    I tried sending a bcc email to myself and received it so I assumed it didn't work. However I haven't had any spam mail since so this must be working with BCC fields too! :D

    1) Add a line to your
    header_checks = regexp:/etc/postfix/header_checks
    2) Create a new file, /etc/postfix/header_checks
    /addresstoblock@yourdomain\.com/    DISCARD
    3) Restart postfix
    /etc/init.d/postfix restart
    This will silently accept the email but not deliver it - if you wish you can use REJECT instead of DISCARD and it will send an undelivered message back to the sender.

    It can't work with bcc: fields, as there is no such fields in SMTP headers. header_checks do indeed check headers.

    Bcc recipient is entered by the protocol with RCPT-TO command, but otherwise bcc recipient is invisible.
