Ok so just so I set this up right:
Set default account to :blackhole:
(or did you set a forwarder to blackhole and then set the default account to go to that forwarder?)
Create a forwarder to go to an on-server address.
Send e-mail to forwarder that goes to an on-server address.
And then the mail shouldn't go through correct?
Just to note, if you set the default account to :blackhole:, :fail: or anything that points to those, the account's username won't receive mail. You would need to create an alias for it manually in the domain's valias file.
For example, the cpanel account username: jack
Default address set to :blackhole:
Mail to [email protected]
will go to the blackhole unless an alias is manually created for it.[/quote:cc893f7c50]
For the first part, correct on both fronts (we tested it it both ways).
In our first test, we performed these steps (assuming mydomain.com is the domain on our server):
1) Set the default account to :blackhole:
2) Created an email account for [email protected]
3) Create a forwarder for [email protected]
pointing to [email protected]
4) Sent an email to [email protected]
from an offsite email account
The message never makes it into the [email protected]
account. Since it doesn't bounce either, it has defintely gone into the blackhole. If we remove the blackhole, it will go through just fine.
