    Is there a way to detect if an address is being forwarded to another address?

    Diablo,

    Most of the recipient email servers will show you the information after you issue a RCPT TO. It is usually a 250 code, followed by "User unknown. Will forward to [email protected]". You can test this out setting your own mail server to forward email sent to non existant accounts to a catch all address.

    I've seen quite a few while working on lists hygiene systems. From the top of my head, I remember Icewarp (used to be Merak) by default setup settings.
