I know this is a FreeBSD group but a lot of you use procmail and I need
some help in a hurry if I can get it.

My domain evidently got "joe jobbed" yesterday, and my customers are getting
hundreds of MAILER-DAEMON type messages. Needless to say, they are not

I figured I could use procmail to temporarily discard MAILER-DAEMON messages
until whatever's going on stops. I don't know much about writing procmail
recipes, but I can google for them. I've tried a variety of things in
/etc/procmailrc, but none are working - MAILER-DAEMON messages are still
being delivered to mail boxes. This is what I've tried:


* ^from.*mailer.*daemon


* ^TO_[-a-z0-9_]+\@mydomain

What am I doing wrong, and is there a better way than this to deal with the
back scatter fromn this joe job?
