Hi,

I've recently added a load of addon domains to my account and placed landing pages on them as I have quite a large domain portfolio, however I keep getting spam to the main default email account through these addon domains People sending emails to [email protected].

I tried to disable emails from non-existent emails with setting Initial default/catch-all forwarder destination to fail in WHM but it hasn't worked?

Hi @inteldigital

The setting Initial default/catch-all forwarder destination should be set prior to the account being created as it will just default to Fail or Blackhole when the account is created. Did you happen to know if you set it before or after? If after, yes, unfortunately it'll need to be done per account.

Thanks!
