stop client sending mass emails


hey

it's in my clients contract that they must use our email marketing software to send out mass emails.

we are running WHM with the clients website on a cpanel account.

is there a way for me to monitor the email traffic so i know if they send out emails to more than 50+ recipients at a time?

im aware that they are sending emails through their desktops using normal smtp accounts, so need a way to prevent this if it's possible.

is it possible?

thanks

In WHM, under Tweak settings, there is an option to limit the maximum number of emails each domain cann send out per hour. You may set it as 50.

Note that the option in WHM >> Tweak settings is a server wide setting.
If you need to limit only one domain, add the domain in /var/cpanel/maxemails (create that file if its not there already)

Syntax is
Domainname=number of mails/hour

This means during a span of one hour?

You can monitor the mail traffic from WHM >> Email >> View Mail Statistics.

Do you want to limit the number of mails a domain can send per hour or number of mails per day?
