Deafult or catch-all email address disabled on servers

In cPanel, the catchall feature is referred to as "default address."

Enabling the default address allows all misrouted or misaddressed email to be sent to a particular email address rather than bouncing.

By design, the catch-all is set to :fail: in order to prevent spammers from sending large amounts of unwanted mail to you.

Our newer servers no longer allow you to set your own default address to prevent spam overflow, so we recommend using forwarders or filters to route your mail instead.
