    Can we disable wildcards (*) on email?

    ex: noemailthatexisthere@example.com => defaultuser@example.com

    all non-existent email is being redirected to my default username. how can i make that when ever non-existent email address has been received it will be refused and not go to my default username's mailbox.

    and can this be done per user? or its required to be global?

    1) Login to Cpanel for the domain.
    2) Go to the mail menu.
    3) Choose "default user".
    4) Change it to either ":blackhole:" or ":fail:".

    thank you very much!

    but whats the difference with

    :blackhole: and :fail:

    fail is, no such address here
    blackhole, is? discard how? just del it? no error message?

    i would prefer fail as that would allow me to use "Dictionary Attack ACL" in Exim with exiscan patch.
