    It appears that there is now no way to make cPanel/WHM reject emails sent to invalid recipients at the SMTP level, in order to prevent backscatter spam from being sent out.

    In previous versions, the following solution could be used:
    Exim: correct setup to verify recipient?

    But now, it says 'endpass' is not recognized anymore.

    Anyone know how to prevent backscatter in cPanel now, other than simply directing the email to a blackhole?
