    I have a bunch of domains that the users do not use email. The catch all email address keeps filling up. I was trying to look to find out how to remove the catch all email address or something so the email will not keep filling up. If you are not able to remove the catch all email address, then can I set a setting that it only keeps email in the mailbox for xx days?

    Login to the cPanel and disable catch all by setting default ID to :fail: no such user here

    You can also ogin to the WHM >> Tweak Settings and set "Default catch-all/default address behavior for new accounts. fail is usually the best choice if you are getting mail attacks." to fail
