Why do i receive a lot of bounced mail from addresses i have never sent mail to?

A problem caused by the way the mail standard is built, is that there is no limit against sending email FROM any domain. The problem is that spammers all around the world are using others domains to send spam in hunt for domains that are Problemet är då att spammare världen runt använder andras domäner för att skicka spam i jakt på domäner som suitable for this. It can be very irritating as there is no effective way to protect against this once they started using your domain.

What you can do is removing the "catch-all" account (the one only called@domainname) since it catches all mail that is not specifically sent to one of your addresses - alternatively you can bind that account against one or more addresses instead for it to receive all mail. Hopefully this will help and you will get rid of these bounces.
