Subject:[courier-users] weird DSN messages to undisclosed-recipients
From:Lorenzo Perone (

Hello to all,

I'm getting these really weird DSN messages and can't really figure out now if it's the client going nuts, the courier MTA finally starting to make funy jokes with crappy clients, or if it's some kind of hacking/spamming attempt over SqWebmail or over any other part of the package. Below there's such a message.


- I replaced the original domain with and the original user name with firstname.surname). - I'm adding the X-Env-Sender header over the maildrop command in the courierd conf file (-a X-Env-Sender: $SENDER). (btw: is there any way, meanwhile, to add the envelope recipient too? $RECIPIENT used to put in the same as Delivered-To..) - There is apparently no content in those messages. Some users have reported to see a "QUIT" in them.

What I'm wondering about is the Received: header. If it was a client, then afaik there should be the IP it is mailing from. There is only one thing runninng on that host theoretically able to do it, namely the sqwebmail (webmail) cgi (or for that matter, any part of the courier package).

Courier version is still 0.54 for now, I was planning an update in the coming weeks.

Any hints? It's really getting me nuts...

Thanx a lot and Regards,
