While testing out a contact form script, I had, (for a period of time until I got further along and put in my own address), yourmail@yourdomain.com (youremail@yourdomain.com) as the email address that the script should send the form contents to. As a result, there are a bunch of bad emails that VodaHost keeps bouncing back to me, informing me they are no good, etc. This is from last Saturday, 1/7. How can I get rid of these things?
Thanks, as always, for the great support.

I need much more information in order to answer your thread

The following is the text from one of them. I can send the full headers if that would help find a fix. It seems to indicate that the problem will fix itself, eventually....
