Thousands of spam that I don't want.
« on: March 13, 2008, 10:43:40 PM »
I have all my email setup through outlook, but I was browsing Cpanel today and found out that I have like 10mb of disk space used on my mail account. I check outlook and like only 20 messages no bigger than 2kb each where saved. When I went into Horde I saw over 5000 messages of spam in some inbox I have never seen before. Is there a quick way to delete these all? How do I prevent this in the future? All the email accoutns I have setup are accessible through outlook but I have never seen these 5000 emails before.

Are the emails in the cpanel username email account by any chance? If so, please change your default address to ":fail: no such user here" without the quotes to bounce all messages sent to addresses on your domain that do not exist.

How to clean the emails depends on which address it is. Cleaning out cpanel username folder is easy with FTP.
