    Question Large numbers of "Undelivered Mail Returned to Sender" messages to admin

    With the new onslaught of viruses that my Zimbra server has been getting, I started getting a ton of undelivered notices in my Admin account. I already found the option to prevent backscatter in the admin, which cut them by half, however I still get a message for every virus that looks like this:

    Subject:	Undelivered Mail Returned to Sender
    Date:		September 7, 2008 6:56:21 PM GMT-04:00
    <NOTE: the differing servers is not an accident, but the accounts are set up correctly>
    This is the mail system at host
    <snipped boilerplate "could not be delivered" text>

    Final-Recipient: rfc822;

    Action: failed

    <original message then follows, with virus warning>
    I can send a message to that account without error. It is just an alias for my account. Today alone I've received this message 14 times - which isn't a ton, but annoying none-the-less.

    Is there something I can do to alleviate this? I've searched the forums, and there doesn't appear to be anyone else with this exact problem.

    Default also affected

    I'm afraid I cannot offer any help on this, just to add that I am getting the same type of email. Even set up a filter to direct them to trash, can get 20+ a day. Just annoying really and would really like to reduce them.
