    Was wondering how you could make an inbox for the root/main host domain.
    For example, Microsofts SND service, spam reports will only suggest mails based on your root domain. Eg: abuse@root.domain.com / postmaster@root.domain.com

    Currently mails send to these addresses get bounced with a "550 You do not have sufficient privileges to send mail to this address. Please authenticate and try again."

    How do you go about this?

    Thank you for your answer, I have looked through the 2 posts, but I am still a little confused. Where do I set this filter? Do I need to make an account for the root domain "host.domain.com" in order to set a global filter in cPanel, or can I set a filter from WHM or from the console?
