    Maybe you enabled : SMTP_BLOCK

    as per documentation of CSF:

    This option will help prevent the most common form of spam abuse on a server that bypasses exim and sends spam directly out through port 25. Enabling this option will prevent any web script from sending out using socket connection, such scripts should use the exim or sendmail binary instead

    Hello ,

    SMTP_BLOCK = 1 i`m going to change it to 0


    and there is "Nobody" option in "Tweak Settings"
    i have enabled the option but some another websites confronted some problems and all the forms are sending to my Root email !

    Please pay attention : i`m not using PHPSuexec and Suexec

    Prevent the user "nobody" from sending out mail to remote addresses (PHP and CGI scripts generally run as nobody if you are not using PHPSuexec and Suexec respectively.)


    Thank You

    Well that summarizes itself, if you prevent nobody from sending e-mail, nobody will be able to send an email.

    hi mate i would reccomend not allowing nobody to send out any type of mail as a attacker or spammer can flood the server sending out numer and numerous amounts of email also check your Mail logs and see if there is anything interesting in there

    If you prevent nobody to send emails, make sure you have SuExec installed so that all your users will run their scripts with their userid and not as nobody.

    Jestin, you don't have to enable SuPHP, disable nobody tweak and enable SMTP_BLOCK, php forms will work. But do keep a check on how forms are being used.

    And follow http://forums.cpanel.net/f22/webhost...ool-54659.html for keeping check on PHP FORM spammers.

    i have changed the settings , we don`t have any problem right now , please check the settings and let me know if there is any Security or spam risk


    SMTP Blocked : 0 (in CSF - means users can use SMTP port#25)
    Nobody tweak : Not marked ( nobody can send mail )


    Default PHP Version (.php files) 5
    PHP 5 Handler dso
    PHP 4 Handler none
    Apache suEXEC on
