4/23/2008 - Exchange routing emails to junkmail@example.org

I was service packing an Exchange 2003 server today and noticed in the queues that Exchange had hundreds of emails queued up for 'junkmail@example.org'. As this is a reserved domain name I decided to investigate further. It turned out that also installed on the server was McAfee Spamkiller For Exchange. The default installation of this is configured to send notifications of spam mail to 'junkmail@example.org', a setting which should be changed to an internal email address.
