Catch all disabled, but still received an email?

    I have catch-all disabled on my account, which I believe is the default, however I noticed that in WHM Tweak Settings, the initial forwarder setting was set to 'System' and not 'fail'.

    I received an email today addressed to a non-existent email address, and was wondering how that's possible if my catch all is disabled? Is it because of the initial forwarder settings? Could the email have actually been addressed to a new account on my server and then forwarded to me because of the initial forwarder setting being set to 'System'?

    Yep that's what I figured, and I guess someone before me must have changed the 'fail' setting to 'system' in Tweak settings. Thanks!
