I am recently receiving emails in Turkish sent to email addresses @mydomain.com that are not created addresses on my cPanel email. For example, I only have one email address: [email protected]. I am receiving email to: [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], and [email protected].
I updated my SPF to "v=spf1 mx a ptr ip4: (my ip address)/32 a:email.secureserver.net -all"
Is there something else I should be doing? Why am I receiving email to addresses that I do not have created? Below is one of the email headers.
Thank you for any and all assistance.

1st, SPF record has nothing to do with INCOMING emails.

2nd, it's normal that spammers send emails to non-existing email addresses.

You should set the Default Address (cPanel-> Email-> Default Adress) to Discard the email while your server processes it by SMTP time with an error message. Then you never see those emails, they will be discarded.
