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.
You can also learn about how to import email accounts and forwarders in cPanel if you already have a list of addresses that you’d like to be able to use for this purpose.
