I have an email server using sendmail. Undelivered messages bounce to postmaster . However the actual message is also included in what the postmaster receives. Due to privacy I do not want this to happen .

Any suggestions? I have looked to similar questions but no luck

Thanks Tony.

You may add nobodyreturn to PrivacyOptions=x,... It will stop your sendmail from adding original message body.


To get current settings:

grep PrivacyOptions /etc/mail/
