Hi Marc,

When fetchmail forward to an unknown user ("SMTP error: 550 unknown
user"), the same happens : no care about the customized bounce message.

Could we consider that as a bug ? If yes, do you know where I should
report it ?

Many thanks for your help,

Ok, this is a bounce generated by exim.

> bounce_message_file = /etc/exim4/bouncemessage

And this is your correct configuration.

It could be a bug in exim that bouncemessage is not honored by exim
when SA-Exim rejects a message. Does your exim honor your
bouncemessage for a different bounce, such as "unknown user"?

I am afraid that I run out of ideas.
