Knowledgebase: Cpanel Control Panel > E-Mail
Default address

Why I am getting all this junk mail to accounts that dont exist?

By default the account login name is also setup as a 'catchall' email. So anything that gets sent to your domain name you'll get.

The way to disable the catchall feature is login to your control panel under, 'Mail' --> 'Default Address' and set it to: ':fail:'

By setting it to fail you also disable this account too, so if you would like to use the user you need to recreate this account again.

Just take note that the login would be the same as the the emails you created, the full email address.
