    I was having a hard time stopping mail (read spam) beeing send to users like mail@domainname.tld and uucp@domainname.tld and mail@domainname.tld. (non existing mail accounts)

    Guess what.. I've found a fix :) (you probably knew this already)

    After adding: local_recipient_maps = $alias_maps to my /etc/postfix/main.cf and doing a postfix reload mail send to non existing users like uucp, mail and webmaster are now nicely rejected :)
