    So I want to turn off catchall emails using :fail:

    I did this in WHM (tweak settings), but it doesn't effect the accounts created before I made the change, it only effects "new accounts"

    When I login to the account I want to change via Cpanel it says
    "The Default E-Mail/Catch-All feature has been disabled by default due to Spam and Security concerns.
    Please contact support if you need assistance with creating mail forwards (aliases) as an alternative. "


    How can I use WHM to edit the accounts manually to set the catchall to :fail:

    someone heeeelp?

    Hi,

    If you are changing the default catch all to :fail, it will effect the newly created ones. So that you should change this via back end. We can do this using a script.

    For example, if you need to change : blackhole to :fail. You can use the following

    replace :blackhole: :fail: -- /etc/valiases/*

    In the same way we can achieve your request using a simple script where in the place of blackhole, we need to specify the default catch all address

    You cannot use WHM for that. You need to do it manually from SSH.
