Just wanted to know if :blackhole: is using up my servers disk space. Right now it saids: 333MB. And just last night it said 199 MB.

If :blackhole: is using up my server space, then where can I delete this file? Or can I delete it?

No, blackhole does not use up server space, but it should not be used. Search for it and you will see all the reasons why not, courtesy of Chirpy. He also has a link on his site about it too.

I use the :blackhole: because I get about 200 to 300 messages in my mail queue in a 24 hour day. Now that I am using :blackhole: I am only getting less then 100 messages in my mail queue in a 24 hour day.

Okay, I'll search info about ":blackhole:".

So how do I change ALL 200+ client's default email addresses to:
:fail: no such address here

without doing it one by one thru WHM/cPanel.
Run the following command at the prompt:
replace :blackhole: :fail: -- /etc/valiases/*
