I am still receiving a lot of emails daily in the mail of cpanel, who left our company.  I deleted mails twice a month. These 40-50 mails daily consume bandwidth also.  I want to delete these mails before enter in domain.  What should I do?

Remove the username / account from the email server or block it in the server's configuration.  The emails will then bounce back with SMTP errors, which should cause the senders to stop sending.

I find for myself and client to have highly effective, configurable spam filters in front of the mail system. That will allow you to stop the emails.

Both the previous posts are valid solutions.  If you're certain that the emails you're getting on that email address is now all spam then you could remove the address/forward from your mail server.  If you're still getting legitimate mail then it would be worth either setting a transport rule on your server to block the emails from your cpanel to that email address or as John suggested setup a third party email filtering service to stop these.

I'm a big fan of email filtering providers.  The emails are scanned and stopped before even hitting your email server
