Topic: maillist address sending email???

I have created a maillist using the instructions placed on the page: http://www.iredmail.org/wiki/index.php? … pLDAPadmin

The problem is that while it's a maillist, for some reason I'm getting return emails via the maillist from bad email addresses saying my maillist sent an email.

Basically, maillist@domain.com is sending email, to which is being bounced back to maillist@domain.com.  But because maillist@domain.com belongs to six accounts, all six email accounts are getting the bounceback.

I think it's a hack, because a maillist shouldn't be sending email, yes?
How do I troubleshoot?
Thank you.

Please paste the original bounce message (returned email) so that others can help troubleshoot.


Does my reply help a little? How about buying me a cup of coffee ($5) as an encouragement?

Pfizer pharmaceuticals - blue tablets. Now the reasonable price and fast delivery to your house. Look here

If I highlight the From "nil zhongmin" line, it says council@trekfederation.com.  Council is the maillist.  It does not have a mailbox.  This means either someone is faking the email (what do I do then?) or something else.
