    Hi, I've my default email set to :blackhole: all the while without any problem. Recently, something seems to change.

    Eg. default email is default@abc.com
    Previously, even with :blackhole: set as Default Adress, I still can receive emails designated to default@abc.com, but now, the system will auto discard any emails sent to default@abc.com

    Another problem with :fail:
    If I set my default email to :fail:, I wasn't able to send mails from my default address, log shows:

    sender verify fail for <default@abc.com>: no such address here
    F=<default@abc.com> rejected RCPT <abc@gmail.com>: Sender verify failed

    I'm running cPanel 10.9.0-R10737

    Set the default address to cPanel username of that account because if you will set the default address to :fail: then it will not work.

    yup, not reaching the existing mail accounts, even though the mail is clearly written designated to the existing email address. and the weirdest part outgoing emails are failed too

    I've had a similar problem a while ago.
    If you have root (shell) access, change your valias file
    e.g.:
    /etc/valiases/abc.com

    default@abc.com: abccom
    *: :fail: keep your spam
