    Postfix - Bounce mail problem


    Hi

    I configured the postfix server to send mails to outside world. Most of the configurations were standard.

    The problem I am facing is that if any user send email to wrong address, the bounce mail does not come back to the sender but either it does not come back or even if bounce comes back, it goes to the mail box of root user instead of going to the actual sender.

    My postfix config file (mail.cf) is as attached.

    Kindly suggest the remedy.

    Thanks & regards

    are you sending these bulk mail scripts from a service, like cron or a php script? because the bounce should come back to the user and not to root.

    didn't see your main.cf, feel free to copy and paste the contents in code tags

    and your running the mail command as root?

    what if you telnet to your server and send an email that way. then you are logged on to the mail server as the intended sender and it should send as that user
    telnet send email - Google Search
