OK than, how do I delete mail addressed to users that do not exist on my
local network (fetchmail, MailScanner sendmail)?
What does this mean "do not exist on my local network"? I have no
idea what this means actually. You can use "LUSER_RELAY" if all
your users have an account or are at least aliased on the
sendmail box or can be checked through ldap and alike.
I'd suggest to redirect with "LUSER_RELAY" to some otherwise
unused account, so you can check if you like and clean the
account from cron periodically. If you are sure it works you
could alias this mailbox to /dev/null.
Of course this has a problem with misspelled mail addresses but
it seems not avoidable with your setup, as you do not receive
mails directly from the sender.
Use comp.mail.sendmail for sendmail specific questions, chances
for qualified answers are much higher there. Include enough
details to enable people to help you.
