    Hello,

    What is your OS?
    Did you check the logs, maillog, messages?. It will help you to solve the issue. Also check your cron setting.
    Let me know the status

    With regards,
    Bijo,

    Hello,

    You can check the maillog using the following command
    --------------------------------------
    #tail -f /var/log/maillog
    --------------------------------------

    Also you should check the cause of that mails.

    You can find out it from reading the mail. If you want to stop this mails, you can do it by disable the "root" mail option in /etc/aliases file. But this is not recommended

    I hope it will help you to solve this issue
    Let me know the status

    Hi,
    Mailer-daemon is default bounce sender ...for singlebounce mails....at least for Qmail...
    So it could be MAILE_DAEMON@...anydoamin possible .it will be a bounce mail....
    But what are those bounces about...?Did u check it in maillogs suggested....?
    just paste the content of anybounce mail here or show log lines about bounces...

    Bye..
