My co-worker killed off our mailarchiva vm and we all sort of forgot to turn off archiving to an external address in Kerio.

Those mails got stuck up in the queue and eventually bounced.

Not a bad thing you say, the admin account will be flooded with bounce messages you say?


Every user gets a bounce message. That is, every internal and external user that has sent a mail that was forwarded to the mail archive and piled up in the queue.

The bad thing about this is (bounce in German):

Dies ist eine Informationsnachricht gesendet durch

nicht an folgende Adressen zustellen:

<admin<_at_>> ( Message was manually deleted from the queue)Reporting-MTA: dns;
Arrival-Date: Tue, 9 Mar 2010 10:00:29 +0100

Original-Recipient: admin<_at_>
Final-Recipient: rfc822;admin<_at_>
Action: failed
Status: 5.3.0
Diagnostic-Code: SMTP; Message was manually deleted from the queue
Received: from localhost ([])

I know we effed up royally, but still - there should be a failsafe 1. not exposing the entire internal domains and 2. don't send out bounces to all the external senders.

Please laugh now.

Yes, the resulting DSN when you manually clear mails from the queue can be highly irritating sometimes. Having the option to silently delete stuff from the queue would be nice, especially when you nuke inbound stuff only to find out that the DSN will bounce too ... Sad

I'd laugh, but I did it myself a few years ago. What a nightmare.
