I am trying to determine where in WHM/Exim I set the Default Addresses to use :fail: instead of :blackhole: or /dev/null?

Also, are there some howtos on setting up RBL/SPAM/Dictionary/Clam/Exiscan for cpanel 11?

Default address can be set in WHM settings area.

If you want to handle dictionary attacks, try Chirpy's golden nugget - http://www.configservers.com/free/eximdeny.html

To change default use of :fail: instead of :blackhole: etc....
1. Go to WHM
2. Click on Tweak Settings under Server Configuration section
3. Then you'll find it under the Mail section in Tweak Settings


For existing accounts, thier default address entries will be in /etc/valiases/domain.name - and would typically look like this if they were set to fail :

*: :fail: No Such User Here

It is the *: at the beginning that indicates that it is the default address.

from an SSH shell prompt you can do this to see what each domain has set for a default address (if it has one at all, most if not all should) :

grep '\*:' /etc/valiases/*

If you want to see which ones are not set to :fail: already, then do something like this:

grep '\*:' /etc/valiases/*|grep -v '\:fail\:'
