Exim sends email to root email


I have an error in exim4. It sends many emails to

[email protected]

The account email (root) doesn’t exist…

This message was created automatically by mail delivery software.

A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its
recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:

  [email protected]
    host hostname[]
    SMTP error from remote mail server after RCPT TO:<[email protected]>:
    550 Email account  is sending too many emails - rate overlimit = 200.4 / 1h

How can I fix it ?

The error is not that the address doesn’t exist. If you read the error you can see that it is a 550 error rate overlimit.
