Well you can try tmda as mentioned in an earlier post.
YOu can configure it to DROP any bounced messages, so they
do not appear in your inbox.
Also if you have a catch-all email address, ie
email@example.com, then the spamers just love those, as
they can make up any user they like for your domain, and
then spam you till their hearts are content!
tmda also allows you to generate special time-limited email
addresses, that are checked for their validity as they come
into your machine.
It can do lots more as well.
I just gave up fiddling with it, as my IPS's spam measures
have been upgraded, and there was hardly any spam getting
through when my domain was on their DNS.
Now I have my domain on another DNS, and I'm currently
collecting my email from their mail server, I need to manage
the email and spam setings differently.
In theory, theory and practice are the same;
in practice they are not.
