Have a read of this page, you might be able to glean some information out of


Also try grepping for the "hi, this is the.." message through various config
files. From what I've been able to find through trawling the qmail groups

Subject: [clug] Qmail bounce message

Does anyone know how to change the bounce message that qmail sends .  I
saw a patch somewhere for qmail1.03 but that looks like hard work.  Has
anyone had to change the bounce message?


It currently reads

Hi. This is the qmail-send program at www.sibern.com.au.
I'm afraid I wasn't able to deliver your message to the following addresses.
This is a permanent error; I've given up. Sorry it didn't work out.

<foo at foo.bar.com>:
Sorry, I couldn't find any host named foo.bar.com. (#5.1.2)
