    Hi,

    Have a really odd problem with e-mails.

    A domain is added, e-mail will work fine. Then apparently randomly setup e-mails will all be sent to the catch-all and only viewable via the main webmail account.

    Nothing on both server and the e-mails setup was changed.

    Running: WHM 8.4.0 cPanel 8.4.0-S99 FreeBSD 4.8-RELEASE

    Is there a setting, or some kind of setup required to disable / enable the catch-all to behave like this?

    The e-mails arent bounced when sent, they just appear in the webmail account.

    That's spam emails.

    Set default address to :fail: or :blackhole: or use spam filters.

    huh, why would spam e-mails cause this behaviour?

    Not 100% sure if the accounts affected actually have any spam ..

    Any valid, created account which would of been working fine for a few days, suddenly stops working and e-mail only works via the main webmail account ..

    How can spam cause that ..
