I am a novice user. A spammer is using my web site to send out spams. I have contacted my service providor and he has told me to do this:-

"For the spam you should setup individual mail accounts and have all un-addressed mail go to :blackhole:"

I am not sure how to do this but assume it is some type of filter I have to set up in cpanel?
I have looked thru the FAQ and searchred this forum

Would really appreciate learning how to do this or any other advice

example

Received: from [202.104.245.172] (helo=smtpgw.stu.edu.cn)

That is not an outboud SPAM that's inbound

but yes you should set up separate user accounts or forwarders and not use your default email account. and set to :fail: no such address here
not backhole

by clicking the Default Address in your email menue

In cPanel click on "Mail" -> "Default address". Then set the default address to :blackhole: The blackhole setting will not send mailer daemon messages back.

However, I recommand to user :fail: instead of :blackhole:
