Email to deleted account delivered to me

Postby Zaph » Fri Sep 15, 2017 10:21 pm

I noticed that a lot of spam messages weren't addressed to my address, but to one that hadn't been used in ages. Since I couldn't figure out why that was I decided to solve that by deleting said account. To no avail, tough - I still get the messages in my inbox. See below for an example from the logs. The email itself only has the deleted address as recipient, and my firstname@-address isn't configured as catch-all.

Using Mailenable Professional 5.60.

Does anyone have an idea what the blazes is going on here? Thanks!

Code: Select all

Ah, a little more searching revealed that BCC can cause this. So, sorry to bother you... :wink:
