Please configure your mailserver properly!

Am I the only one who’s sick of getting bounced email to aliases that never ever ever send email, and spammers are obviously forginging headers? How does spamming my alias with bounces help anything?

Here’s an example:

This is the Postfix program at host

I'm sorry to have to inform you that your message could not
be delivered to one or more recipients. It's attached below.

For further assistance, please send mail to postmaster

If you do so, please include this problem report. You can
delete your own text from the attached returned message.

The Postfix program (expanded from host[] said: 550 This message looks like spam.
This server will not accept spam. (in reply to end of DATA command)

Please, please, please, please configure your mailserver to silently reject spam. bouncing to an innocent group becuse some ass has forged our address does nothing, except makes YOU the spammer.
