    Hey erm... Is there a way we can disable email being sent to a certain email account.

    This is cause I am getting way to many spam emails from all these companies. And the companies aren't even sending it to a valid email address. It seems as if when they have the domain name they can send a email to me.

    For example Website http://yoursite.com
    My email is cpanel@yoursite.com

    But they send emails to

    blah2@yoursite.com
    blah3@yoursite.com
    blah500@yoursite.com

    And all of those emails still end up to my cpanel@yoursite.com inbox.

    Set your default email address to fail. To do this, in cPanel 11 with the X3 theme go to the Mail feature block and click on Default Address. Then select Discard with error to sender (at SMTP time).

    Now just set up forwards or accounts for the email addresses you actually do use.
